What inspires you the most? Unicorns and dragons

Best surf video segment of all time? Dane's hourlong mash-up of all of his 5 min clips put together

What is your Internet homepage?

What's something you do every single day, without exception? Eat massive amounts of food

Where was the last place you wore a tie? I wore one to prom sophomore year of high school, but it was on my head and I was shirtless while dancing with my stone cold fox of an English teacher

What's your Instagram name? @noahwaggy

Why should people follow you? They probably shouldn't. I'm kind of a weirdo

Favorite world champion? Hot dog eating world champ Takeru Kobayashi

What's the farthest you've ever had to travel on foot? When I was 15, I hiked 20 miles with my mom on Mother's Day. Anything for love

If you were to start a business, what would you sell? I'd start an undergarment line for men and call it Noah's Secret

Worst enemy? Great white sharks

Do you tweet? I'm supposed to, but I always forget and it's stupid. No pictures and honestly who cares about your life? I'm living mine

Worst tattoo you've ever seen? CALL ME MAYBE with a phone number underneath blasted across this Aussie kid's chest in Indo

Why are drugs bad? People use them as excuses to say they're having a good time, but all you really need to do is just have a good time

Best thing a girl has ever said to you? Umm, girls don't really talk to me

Best book you've ever read? I read a lot, but I don't know. The worst book I've ever read was The Pearl by John Steinbeck. It's so depressing. I hate that guy, all his books suck

Would you rather do an air reverse or a big carve? Big carves; I attempt way too many air revos

How many boards do you order a year? Like three if I can afford it. They're so expensive

What is the best way to progress your surfing? Watch snowboard and skate videos and only surf when you're hungry for it. Quality over quantity

Does surfing belong in the mainstream? Yes. If people will watch fat dudes tackle each other in tights for a
football, then people doing crazy things in an uncontrolled environment should be banging off the charts

Why do you surf? It keeps me sane. I would lose my shit if I couldn't

What annoys you about surfing? Bad waves, people who take it too seriously and old grumpy guys who can't surf

Best non-surfing experience? Eating donuts

Was surfing cooler in the '70s? So much cooler

Do you do your hair? No, but I started brushing my hair and now I understand why girls do it. It feels good to have it combed and smooth
