I sacrificed my former life. In order to be in the water more than 2-3 times a year, I moved from where I grew up at to live in a beach town. Now, I'm in the water 2-3 times a week on average year round. It took a lot of effort to get to where I am at now, from all the losses I had to cut to get here, very hard physically and emotionally. I moved away from my family and friends in order to surf waves. So far I think I top all your stories guys!
