Reid is an East Coaster by birth and a Southern Californian by choice. He's a self-proclaimed post-surf burrito connoisseur and all-around food lover. He can't take anyone seriously who claims they prefer cats to dogs. Despite the early days of learning, he has never surfed a longboard. And that doesn't bother him a bit. Since moving to California, he has moved from coordinating world-class surf contests for the International Surfing Association in La Jolla, California, to the role of Assistant Editor at The Inertia. He is currently based in Venice, California, where his passions extend beyond the surfing world and he can be found regularly daydreaming about sailing around the world, opening his own restaurant, learning to play guitar, and the English bulldog he doesn't own...yet.
