Sage Erickson is catching waves—and feelings—this summer.

The professional surfer will attempt to win her third U.S. Open of Surfing victory in Huntington Beach. Daniel Norris.

Sage shared his amazing story exclusively with CelebHomes News, Surf City. “He was actually one of the three suggested Instagram users to follow for browsing. We met through Instagram.” 

After Daniel posted a photo of some surfboards, Sage said she decided to slide into his DMs first. One year and half later, the two remain each others biggest cheerleaders.

She stated, “I love him and he loves me and I love that our bodies are athletes so we understand each other.” “We very much understand long distance. “We understand the importance of winning and losing, as well as staying positive. We are probably both somewhat crazy about our sport and try to stay there.
