How did you get into high performance sports psychology? Was it something you always dreamed of or it was something that you pursued? Yeah, my experience, like, I didn't know that this even existed as a, as a lifestyle or as an art, as a science. It, I was young and I grew up here, uh, in the South Bay in the beaches, and I surfed and I surfed a lot.

And there was a significant difference between how I would surf in free surf and then how I would surf in competitive surfing. And I wasn't as good in the competitive environment. And so there was a competitor that paddled by me who we surfed every day together and we were in a competition. And he paddled by and he said, um, I mean, I can remember the day like it was yesterday.
