Erin was one of our first Traveler Surf Club Pacifica members; so she has a special place in our hearts for helping us prove that yes, a cozy spot on the coast to warm up after a surf is not such a crazy idea! She's also the rad owner of HOMEROOM, an Oakland-based restaurant dedicated to the best food on earth: macaroni and cheese. When she's out of the water that pretty much means she's the coach of a team of nearly 100 people making delicious comfort food for hungry, happy folks in the East Bay.
Hometown? "Los Angeles"
Current Board? "A custom 8 ft board designed and shaped by Dawn Patrol out of Santa Cruz."
Dream board? "A 7 footer of any kind, because it would mean I could actually successfully ride a board that short :) Thus far I've only made it comfortably down to 7'6''
Best trip that you've been on in the last 5 years? "Japan for eating purposes, southern Costa Rica for surfing purposes :)"
Recent projects? "I just had an article published in the Washington Post about a month ago [on creating a respectful working environment in the restaurant industry.] I am also working on how to build my company to expand to new locations."
