The Need to Surf
"Surfing was always kinda the first thing in my life and music is secondary," Johnson says. "I don't mean to say music means less to me. When I go on tour it's definitely, it takes all the energy to do it and we're not around waves all the time and I love it. But when I go home, I usually put the guitar in the closet for a few weeks. I don't need to play all the time like I need to surf. I don't feel like myself if I don't surf."
