In our first installment of Dialogue, we're getting into the holiday spirit so we asked a few of our ambassadors and friends what they're thankful for. 

Evan Mock
"For growing up in the best place on earth (the North Shore) with people who push me to be the best I can be and with waves and skate spots that allow me to do that."

Sage Erickson
"More chances. You always have another opportunity to try something new, go somewhere else, and do something over...just better!"

Brooke Dombroski
"For my rad community of surfers and ocean lovers on the North Shore because it's the best feeling when you roll up to the beach and all your friends are there."

Daniel Jones
"To be walking and talking and back in the water! In January at Pipe I tore some ligaments in my neck and my c4 vertebrae moved but stopped before hitting my spinal cord. Also thankful for my bodyboarder buddy, Daniel, who pulled me up!"

Ryan Spencer
"For friends that become family."

Laura Enever
"Friends. Because my most treasured memories are of times with them. And I'm thankful for sunrises and sunsets; they always just make me feel so damn lucky about simply living!"

John Hook
"For the opportunity and means to be able to live on Oahu. Living on an island with good, warm surf year round is awesome. I don't think I'll ever leave."
