First Car: It was a jeep Cherokee. My friends said it was purple, but the color was wild-berry.  I jumped it off a big dirt mound dukes of hazard style and that was the end of it.

First wakeboard tape you bought:  This would have to be mayday. It’s till one of the best films. And Josh Smith Had a blue mohawk.

First CD: MC hammer. Hammer time!

First Flip: A backroll with no tower.  I really had to earn that one.

First Girlfriend: Anita Jensen. I think we dated for 2 weeks in 7th grade, and we didn’t even go on a date.  Does that even count??

Time you went hunting:  I’ve shot tons of blue jay’s and squirrels with a pelet gun growing up. I’m pretty sure that’s why I’m so good at Call of Duty.

First animal you had mounted:  I caught a 8 foot blue fin sword fish in Hawaii. It’s still on my wall.

First overseas flight: Dominican Republic while shooting for Transgressions with Gator.

Time you realized that you won’t be young forever: This morning when Twelker was riding like a freak of nature and I was tired after 20 mins.

Sponsor:  Earth Board Wakeboards in 2002.

Time you drank too much:  A high school party up at Dan Oak’s house on 10th grade.  Remember Zima?

Time you met Randall Harris:  Malibu Open in 2003.

Ambulance ride: Never had one (knock on wood).

Boat:  1993 marlin. It had a pole, and it was sick. At least we thought so.

Board: 1st board I ever rode was a flight 69 w/ bad ass bindings. 1st board I ever bought was a 2001 hyperlite drifter with those blue and orange Belmont bindings.
