As for Daniel's MARI side, he has been know to live in his Volkswagen van, known as shaggynorris on Instagram, to travel the California coast in search of the Pacific's best swells to surf. Norris did not grow up near the ocean, he grew up in Johnson City, TN where his family has owned a bicycle shop for more than 80 years. Drawn to the outdoors, he picked up surfing when he was old enough to travel solo. Surfing is more than just fun for Norris; it helps him stay in shape and gets his mind in a calm headspace. He's surfed notorious waves along the Atlantic, California, Japan, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and more.
