If you are not in the water surfing, what are you doing to keep you mind/body challenged?
When I am not in the water I spend my time focus my mind on running Mulcoy Travel. It is a website focused on getting people to the best waves in the world. This has always been my passion so it’s nice to give back some of my knowledge to those that want to find perfect un-crowded waves.

I would be a bush pilot up in Alaska finding places to fish.
