It’s a typical winter day on Kauai.  It is 70 degrees, windy, rainy with a bit of sunlight shining through the clouds.  Alana walks in the studio. I ask her how she is and how the surf is.  She answers, “Fun but a bit blown out.”  She’s an optimist I know and will usually make the best out of every situation.  She says I’m ready for “a really good workout”.  I know what this means; Alana is one of my strongest clients.  And I’ve been doing this for 12 years with all levels of professional athletes.  She is amazing.  She is an animal…this will be a tough workout.  Here is her workout: (more…)

I love a good challenge. Proving something to myself and overcoming an obstacle I didn’t think I could makes me feel like Kelly Slater the day he won his 11th world title.

Taylor Knox Retires at Age 41

Leader of the original Momentum crew, and what many call “the best rail-to-rail surfer in the world” T-Knox is hanging up his singlet after 20 years on the elite world tour. Taylor Knox spent the last couple season surfing against pros who weren’t even born when Taylor joined the pro tour.

The Hall of Famer now resides in Carlsbad where he manages his new Craft Brewing enterprise Saint Archer, enjoys life as a newlywed and father, then continues to pursue surf travel for video parts. Follow him on Instagram to check up on the power surfing icon.

After his retirement party at the Haleiwa Cafe, he enjoyed a homecoming at he and Kerzy’s favorite joint, Fish 101. So if you’re ever in C-Bad, stop in for the dankest fish tacos you’ve ever had, and you might get to rap out with a local legend.

One of Taylor’s secrets to his long successful careers was working with his sponsors to develop high-performance gear.  In doing so, Taylor overcame injuries that doctors said would end his career.

Train like Taylor with top gear from Rip Curl, Channel Islands, OAM and Reef.
