“Having the faith that it is going to work out, regardless of how dire it can seem at times, how far it can seem but just having the faith that it is going to work out and you are going to get to your destiny...” - CJ Hobgood
CJ Hobgood is a World Champion Surfer who worked his way up the ranks in the surfing world from a young age.

This conversation with CJ was the first time we got to talk with each other and have a discussion. We exchanged a couple text messages and emails to set up our conversation, but you will hear from our time together that we have a lot more in common than you would think. CJ is a great athlete and a great human as you will see. Enjoy the episode…
