Cody started surfing at the age of 9 in the Virgin Islands. Soon after, he began to test his skills in competitions at neighboring islands. As he grew older, he pursued an engineering degree while competing at the collegiate club level in surfing.

Today, Cody surfs regularly in the slightly colder waters of Southern California. Not having done many competitions in a few years, he is excited to represent his home while trying to qualify for the Olympics.
