The term gnarly gets thrown around a lot and a lot of people think surfers are some skinny stoner dudes who just travel, cruise with hot chicks and smoke herb. The truth of the matter is big wave surfers are not just surfers they are watermen, modern day descendants of Poseidon himself who have trained their entire life for moments like these. The amount of pounds of pressure per square inch a wave will deliver will blow your mind. Taking a beating of one of these to the reef will kill you in a split second. If I were to describe this wave coming at you it would be like the entire football team, rugby team, @ufc all hitting you at once while getting t-boned by 2 cars, good times... Needless to say staying calm and focused is vital for survival.

A year ago today I watched a tidal wave of fire come down the mountains like a freight train demolishing everything in its path including my life’s work barely surviving. One of the hardest years of my life in multiple ways. Friends that I thought that would be there to help were not and people I never met did. So many lessons learned from this experience. One lesson is to be grateful for the little things in life because everything can be taken away from you in a blink of an eye. I am also very grateful for the friends who did help @zingersrh @wyattisagirl @lanzybear @derekdlife when I needed them the most. I can’t thank you guys enough and the rest of my friends and people who supported me that I can’t name all your names but you know who you are and I am so grateful. It’s not how you get knocked down but how you get back up. Onwards and upwards...πŸ™πŸ½πŸ”₯ #woolseyfire

Two years ago I got to sing some country songs with these lovely people. Not a day goes by I don’t think about you all and Melisa Ramirez top right corner who was shot and killed instantly in front of me. 10 minutes of continuous shooting which felt like eternity shot over 400 people and killed 58. Every day is a blessing to be able to walk this beautiful earth. Forever grateful we were able to survive... #vegasstrong @danbilzerian @nuv1998 @jwauf @jacksontravels πŸ™πŸ½πŸ’œ
