I picked up surfing about 4 years ago. When I first started I was on a “fun board”, a 7’4″ Ocean Pulse. I quickly went from that surfing Lib Tech shortboards about 6’4″ or less while working at Mervin Manufacturing. Surfing wasn’t really an option for me growing up in the Milwaukee, WI area. At the time I didn’t find paddling out with icicles on my face appealing.

I’m just now starting to try to learn to cross step. Check out the video below from last weekend in Westport, WA.
