Multiple international Covers on Surfing Magazine, Surfer Magazine, Kite Surf magazine, Surfers Journal
I am very proud to have 2 covers on Surfer Magazine that were taken in waves that no one has surfed until that day the photos was taken.
What is your favorite Pre surf song?
Way To many songs to choose from, but mostly I listen to country.
Who is your favorite Fox athlete of all time?
When did you get your first board and what was it?
Kevin Reed gave me my first surfboard and it was a Pearson Arrow twin fin. Circa 77’’
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 its nice to give back some of my knowledge to those that want to find perfect un-crowded waves.
If you were not a professional surfer, what would you be?
I would be a bush pilot up in Alaska finding places to fish.
