Chris was born and raised in Honolulu and grew up surfing on the south shore of Oahu. An entrepreneur, Chris started his own computer business at age 13 and had several large notable local clientele. He graduated from University of Hawaii at Manoa with a BA in Business Management. However, his real passion was being in the water and sharing the excitement of surfing with people from around the world.
Chris’ love and appreciation for the ocean is always apparent in the water, he certainly takes his job seriously but always has a big smile while doing so. Due to his fluency in Japanese, he has taught many students from Japan as well as the rest of the world. Surfing continues to be his passion even though he works full-time at a local financial institution. If he had a choice, he would be surfing all day and every day. Chris is available to teach on Saturdays and Sundays.
