Getting healthy!

Who is the most influential person in your life and why?
That's a tough one. Thomas Horrell for having the most creative mind I know. Thomas has always been way ahead of the game mentally. Whether it is music, wakeskate design, marketing, visual arts, or just plain riding a wakeskate different and better than anyone else, this guy has it going on. Scott Byerly for being a professional. Going to boat shows with Byerly really opened my eyes to how unique that guy is. I have always loked up to and respected Byerly in so many ways, personally and professionally, but seeing him interact with anyone 2 to 82, and truly care about oure sport and everyone who participates is awakening. He is truly the face of our sport. And last but not least. Danny Hampson knows how to live life better than anyone. And I'm not just talking about partying. Danny's aspect on all aspects of life is enthusiastically refreshing. He really loves living life and it shows in everything he does.

My wife Jami, She's all mine!!!! And I have a 4 trac, brand new, in the wrapper in my living room

What is your biggest accomplishment so far?
Being involved in some of the best video projects in the business. Sfumato, NARLA, Volume, And The Truth were my favorites. I also shared a part with Byerly in The Butter Effect. That was pretty epic.

Three M's
Fresh Air

What does your ideal day consist of?
Right now I'm on the injured list. I would absolutely love to go skate right now. It's a beautiful 73 degrees this morning in Texas, and the new skatepark in New Braunfels is calling my name. Then a nice lunch with my wife, followed by an outing on the boat, or with the winch, with the Obcura boys. Then I would probably sleep. I love to sleep, just not in the mornings.

What does your ideal night consist of?
Sleep. I'm too old to party.

The Office

Favorite movie?

Favorite book?
The old Man and the Sea. It's short but ever so bittersweet.

Skateboarding and Carpentry.
