James O.

Boardsports Addict

Writer/PCS Profiles Team

My name is James, and I'm an Air Force brat stationed at Camp Humphreys in South Korea. I've traveled the world from Yokota, Japan, to Stuttgart, Germany, and Hickam AFB in Hawaii, San Antonio, TX, and Andrews AFB in Maryland. I love boardsports, especially surfing and snowboarding, but I also dabble in a wide variety of other extreme sports, from mountain biking, to parkour, to breakdancing, with varying degrees of success. In Germany I went to school off-base and learned fluent German, but aside from that, I've been tossed around military and DoDEA schools like everyone else.
