A special thanks to my Mom for driving me to the beach as a kid even when I didnt deserve to go. Also, to my brother Jack who always told me that I had salt water on my brain and sand between my toes. Most of all to my Dad who was my biggest influence, my true driving force and allowing me to be me. A surfer by heart, thank you Dad AKA the original Muzzy.
