“I ended up hitting rock bottom. I didn’t have anything. I stopped selling drugs and I was just doing them. I owed a lot of people money. So I walked about 6 miles to my mom’s house and I told her I wanted help. She said, “You’re past that. Find who you are because you’re past saving for me.” I went to the local surf shop to mend those old wounds and started helping out. Surfing saved my life. All the things that I was searching for are coming to me now. I’m not out there chasing it any more, they’re coming to me. Be who you are. Believe in yourself, first. Spread love – anything you love, anything that you’re passionate about. No matter what it is, it doesn’t matter what it is. I guarantee there are other people out there with the same passions that you have.”
