Hi I'm Isaiah Walker

I am an avid surfer, professor of history, and father of five.

About Me

I joined the lDS church when I was 16 and served a mission for the church 3 years later. As a missionary, I sacrificed my lifelong passion of surfing for two years. However, upon my return home I was blessed with the opportunity to surf regularly and I became a professional historian of surfing.

Why I am a Mormon

I read the book of mormon cover to cover before joining this church. I wanted to make sure I was making the right choice. After much prayer and deliberation, I received spiritual confirmations that it was the right thing to do. The fruits of this decision have been sweeter than I could have ever imagined at that time.

How I live my faith

I work with youth in our area. In addition to running a community surf club, where I teach local Hawaiian kids the art of Surfing, I also serve in the Young Men's organization for our church. Here, I get to encourage youth of our area to make wise life choices.
