Hy Jacob! When and where did you arrive on earth?

Honolulu Hi.


Yeah, it is a nice place. I travel in this island in 2007,it is my best surf trip! When did you start bodyboarding?

Around age 7

8-copie-1.jpgYeah, You started young! It is cool! Where do you live at Oahu and is it a good place to bodyboard?

I live Central Oahu so u get all the spots to go islandwide. Depending on the swell and the winds.


Do you often ride skateboards?

Not much just bomb some hills once and while.
Yeah bro!You are ready for IST!

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?
