Define “underground”: Someone who surfs really well, doesn’t get much exposure and isn’t acknowledged for how hard they rip

Five best underground Hawaiian surfers, in your opinion: Hank Gaskell, Evan Valiere, Dege O’Connell, Kelly Evert, Makana Eleogram

Three biggest accomplishments in surfing:
Getting the cover of Transworld Surf
Third in the Da Hui Backdoor Shootout ’08
Third in the Monster Energy Pipe Pro in ‘05

Three biggest goals in surfing:
Make it on to the ASP World Tour
Win the Triple Crown
Win a world title

If surfing paid no money, what would you do? I would still surf everyday and find a job I loved

How far did you go in school? I graduated from high school

If you could travel to one place, where would you go? Wherever the swell is

If you could surf one contest, what would it be? The Pipe Masters

Describe a popular misconception about Hawaii: It’s not a permanent vacation for us. We have to work really hard for what we want because there is lot of talent in such a small area and not a ton of money coming into the islands
