Newark, New Jersey
Where was the first place you surfed and how old were you?
The first place I surfed was at Breezy Point, Queens, NY at the age of 9 on a wooden ironing board (no joke).
What made you fall in love with surfing?
It was the feeling of the sun, sand, surf with the feeling of freedom when riding a wave.
What is your favorite part of surfing?
For me it is the feeling of being connected to God and nature when in the water
When did you get into Paddle Surfing?
I started paddle surfing about 4 years ago.
Where is your favorite surf break and why?
It would have to be where I learned how to surf in Breezy Point, NY. I have great memories with friends and where else could you be surfing at a bird sanctuary while looking at downtown NYC!
What is your favorite board and who are your favorite shapers?
My favorite board is my Holiday Kustom SUP shaped by Andrew Patterson and Stu Sharpe.
Who is your favorite surfer?
Buttons Kaluhiokalani - I loved the way he flowed from one turn to another and switching stance.
Why so much love for 27 North?
They make the best paddles and they are great people, like a family!
What advice would you give someone getting into paddle surfing?
I would advise someone to work their way down in size of boards. Start bigger and gradually go smaller as you gain experience and confidence.
Hello 27 North Family,
We hope you are enjoying your transition into fall weather. We know you die hard SUP fanatics will not let a temperature change keep you off of the water just because the calendar says October. Stay liquid and keep paddling!
We have some exciting news for a few of our team riders to help them stay healthy and on the top of their training routine. Garden of Life www.gardenoflife.com based out of Palm Beach Gardens, Florida has been so kind to sponsor Kieran and Fisher Grant as well as yours truly as product ambassadors towards achieving “extraordinary health”. Garden of Life has combined the best products found in nature and applied the highest level of science to come up with a line of products that are undoubtedly the best you can buy. As you may (or may not know) there is a direct correlation between nutrition, exercise and health. We quote “raw, whole food nutrition, from organically grown sources, is more beneficial for health than isolated nutrients. When coupled with exercise, a diet that includes the consumption of raw, live foods, particularly those containing probiotics, enzymes and products of their fermentation, is the foundation for a healthy lifestyle”.
So, what does this mean? Well… first, take a look at www.gardenoflife.com and learn about the extensive line of healthy products and where they are available near you. GOL has made a commitment to our athletes and we will in turn make a commitment to explaining the benefits of the products our athletes consume from Garden of Life. In other words, we learn and achieve our healthy lifestyle goals and success together. We see the Grant Brothers as a prime example of how healthy living, a strict training routine and a sharp mind can help you get you to your goals. As for myself, well...as a “middle aged” multi-business owner, competitor and family man with a very little free time, the benefits of GOL products will be immediate. I know, you see a good deal of people pushing sponsored products online mainly because they get free things and have to tell you all about it! Truth be told, I would not talk or type about it if I did not believe in it and the same goes for our riders on 27 North. We do not want our riders talking up our paddles if they do not truly believe in the brand. Same goes for me! Long story short, we are extremely excited about this.
Stay tuned for more information by all means make sure you are following 27 North as well as Garden of Life on social media for a ton of useful information:
