Growing up in Southern California, Brett Young is a self-described "beach bum," but there's one aspect of coastal life that he just never entirely adapted to.

“As I got older, I realized that surfing, while it was something that I did my whole life, was something that I wasn’t very good at, and I started to get frustrated with.

"But at the same time I still loved and missed the beach. And so as I’ve gotten older, I realize that just being at the beach, it doesn’t matter what we’re doing, throwing the football or going for a swim; if we’ve got a sunny summer day, I’m headed to Newport Beach.”
