ed when a friend of the family bough me a jordan poster when I was in 1st grade b/c I was into hoop.(I started watching his games and it was a rap). I'm from Brooklyn originally so b-ball is the @#%$ in my house. I'm still die hard about hoop but I've always had good balance (esp for my size) and been into swimming and what not. So I got into surfing about 5 summers ago and haven't looked back. I surf the south shores of Long Island and I like the uniqueness of clashing the two cultures.
