Dan uses a "goofy foot." That's surfer jargon for a right-foot-forward stance.
Surfing is the essence of life for Dan, 47. The Hawaii resident, native of California and retired biology teacher has been at it for more than 35 years, and is a longtime member of Hawaii's north shore surfing community.
