"As a kid I grew up around the ocean. I loved everything about the ocean. Diving, snorkeling, sailing and much more. But I was always passionate about surfing and cruising around the beautiful islands of my home country, Maldives. I was always curious to know how nature worked so I wanted to learn and experience to understand the beauty of mother nature. "
