Terrence was born in the water. Surfing by the age of five, picking up a fishing pole shortly after and becoming fascinated with the ocean throughout his experiences. He bought a Hobie ’16 before he even had his driver’s license and was a state champion surfer for six years straight. The love and respect he has for the ocean is indescribably fascinating.
