Born and raised in San Diego, California, Travis has been playing in Mother Ocean since he was five years old. His first board was a Mach-7 Morey boogie board that he used until he was introduced to surfing around the age of 12 by a family friend. During his early teens, he spent the majority of his time surfing La Jolla shores and South Mission Beach while playing competitive baseball. At the University of San Diego, Travis decided to quit playing baseball and start surfing competitively via the National Scholastic Surfing Association where he won several events and took 6th place at the College Longboard Nationals. But it wasn't until he arrived at the shores of the Marino Ballena National Park in Bahia Ballena, Osa, Costa Rica that Travis realized he had a deep love and respect for Mother Ocean and that he wanted to transmit that love via surf instruction and Bodhi Surf + Yoga. Today, Travis possesses a fantastic ability to get students to understand that learning surf is much much more than just learning how to stand up on a moving board. He uses a wide variety of tools to get his students excelling in and out of Mother Ocean. You'll hear him frequently saying, "Smile while you paddle", a metaphor for life!
