Professional Surfer/Training Fanatic

The Inertia

For me, the best part of summer is all the people. All the people going surfing, all the crowds at the beach. When you’re running down before your heat, and you can hear people cheering for you, it’s pretty sick. It’s kind of nice. In the winter, you can go down to the beach, and it can be like a ghost town. It can be a weird feeling. It’s kind of creepy. All the crowds, all the families going to surf and hang out at the beach… that’s the best part.

Editor’s Note: My Summer Bucket List is a new series powered by Red Bull that encourages you to make summer count. Comment below or tag @redbulllax with the hashtag #makesummercount and @theinertia on Instagram or on the Make Summer Count Website, and tell us what’s on your bucket list. We’ll compile the best ones and include yours in our ultimate summer bucket list in September!
