    When I was little you could not keep me out of the water. My family and I would spend weekends at my grandparent’s lake house. I had fun and learned how to water ski, wakeboard, and kneeboard. I started wake surfing by going out on my uncle’s boat when I was 5 years old.  After a couple of tries I got up and rode for a pretty good distance. It was fun so I convinced my parents to get a wake surf boat. I started to surf more and I got pretty good at it. So I entered my first competition at the age of 7 in Austin, Texas called Barrel Boss. I got the youngest ripper award which at the age of 7 was so exciting!

    I started out competing in the junior and amateur divisions, then in 2012 I entered the Outlaw surf division. I ended the 2014 season at the Worlds Competition at Lake Las Vegas where I hit the 1st place podium in the outlaw surf division. I then joined all the professional surfers that I have looked up to over the years in 2015, at the age of 14. During my rookie year, I took the podium a few times.

    I am looking forward to my second pro season in the summer of 2016.  Although still training to learn new tricks to keep up with my competition, I am concentrating on teaching friends and others how to wake surf this season.  Surfing has grown tremendously in the past 5 years, and I’m excited to introduce others to the sport.

    I’m currently a freshman at A&M Consolidated High School in College Station, Texas.  I am currently taking health care and medical classes in High school, to hopefully help me purse my career goal in some type of Medical degree.  When on land I enjoy football, hunting, fishing, and riding four wheelers.
