How much you love the beach life (Rate 1-10): 10+
Your favorite beach: That's a tough one. I would have to say my favorite surfing beach that I've been to is Cape Hatteras, NC...but my favorite beach is St. Andrew's Scotland (even though it's really cold, it's beautiful!)
Tell us a little about you: I grew up in the peidmont of North Carolina, about three hours away from the uber-public beaches and anywhere from six to eight from the beautiful Outer Banks. I've seen all kinds of things like London and St. Louis, but nothing compares to a good beach. I swam competitvely for fourteen years, and have been bodyboarding for God knows how long. I'm so excited that I'm finally getting a chance to learn to surf. I go to school at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, which puts me closer to the beach! I'm also a sailer and a lifeguard.
