Best swimming memory:
The 1988 Seoul Olympics, when David Berkoff opened my eyes to changing the training technique of swimming. He was using the monofin, which I had first been exposed to in 1987. This single swim set the creative foundation for starting FINIS with Pablo Morales in 1993.

The Stanford University pool brings back many fond memories of CCS swimming and waterpolo, along with the memories of watching a number of tremendous swimming and polo events since.
Favorite FINIS product:
The Swimmer's Snorkel and the SwiMP3. They allow me to relax and swim with reduced stress and tension. I get to simply enjoy my swim.
