Partons à la découverte d'un roi du Drop Knee qui a été 2 fois US Champion!!!La classe!!Il s'appelle Brian et il est aujourdh'ui en interview sur le site de l'Island Slalom Tour!!
Could you describe you in few line?
BODYBOARDER who is blessed to get to play in the ocean for a living!
When did you started bodyboarding and why?
I started stand up surfing when I was 6 years old... Then started bodyboarding at 12 because the waves were more conducive...
What do you prefer in bodyboarding! prone or Drop knee and Why?
Im pretty split 50/50... I even throw in stand up boogie once and a while! I just love riding waves... Standing up, laying down or DK... I think the more versatile you are the better wave rider you can become!
Where do you live ! is it a good place?
I grew up in Ocean City, Maryland, USA... The waves get really good at home and I personally love it. Its not as consistent as some places, but when it gets good, its really good!
What is your best result in contest?
I have won a few US Tour events and won the DK US Title 2 times... Ive had a few good Aussie Tour finishes back in the day that I didnt win, but the competition was so insane that I still have to include those on my list!
What is the craziest meal that you eat during a surf trip?
Craziest meal... I dont experiment too much! Ironically, the craziest / worst was probably in the US... On a California trip... A few of us got Duck from China Town in LA... Duck as in the actually one hanging in the window. Let's just say that was a bad idea and I didnt surf for a few days because of it!
Do you often ride skateboards?
Once and a while! Until I get hurt, then Im done for a bit.
Island Slalom Tour is a series of skateboarding contests on tiny french islands where nobody has ever skated! We are as Captain cook at Hawaii in 1600! Except we have now motor boats and concrete roads... What do you think about this?
Not sure that makes sense!
What is your biggest Wipe Out?
A little point in Oz that just a few of us paddled out at... Couldnt tell how big it was and it was crossing up on the reef... I miss timed a wedge section and took the lip to the face and then was thrown right into the reef... I had a head ache for a week!
One morning, you wake up ,You arrive in your kitchen and suddenly, you see a genius in wetsuit! He say:” Hey Charles , I can offer you 2 magic gifts if you give me a bottle of milk! What do you say?
Here ya go!
