If you were stranded on a desert island and could only bring three things with you, what would they be?
If there were waves I would bring a board, family, and lots of food. If there weren’t waves I would bring food, family, and a boat.
If you had a part in a surf vid, what music would you choose to play during your segment?
Depends what kinda mood I was in at the time. Right now I really like some rap/techno stuff by Ratatat. They’re sick.
If you could surf with anyone, who would it be?
My brother, my dad, and a few other buddies.
If home wasn't home, where would home be?
Tavarua.
If you could take back one thing in your life what would it be?
Having appendicitis in Fiji. That sucked.
Other than surfing, what do you do for fun?
Play Guitar Hero 3 with my brother, play ping pong and eat.
How long have you been surfing?
About five years in contests. I started surfing when I was two but then I skateboarded until I was like 6. That was when I really loved it.
Who do you model your style after?
I model my style from myself. 
What's the weirdest thing you've ever done?
Can’t say that… My mom wouldn’t be too happy.
What's something you hate about surfing?
Nothing at all.
What's something you love about surfing?
Everything.
When were you the most scared you've ever been in the water? 
I don’t think I have one moment in particular but this one time at Rincon I duck-dove this slab and was down for a long time. 
What's something your friends make fun of you for?
My height. Whatever. It’s easier to get barreled.
Favorite line from a movie?
“I like to wear my tuxedo T-shirt because it says I’m formal, but I like to party.”- Cal Naughton, Jr. All of my family quotes funny stuff but we have been saying this one lately.
Favorite maneuver? 
Barrels
Favorite local surfers?
Bobby Martinez and Dane Reynolds
Favorite big name pros?
Bobby Martinez and Dane Reynolds
What are your plans for '08?
Hopefully do well at Nationals, travel and get barreled, have fun with the family, and get some big waves in the winter.
