St. John like you have never seen before...
The beach has always felt like home to Christian Wheatley.
Whether surfing in California at age 11 or later working in the Florida Keys on a reef project, he has always been in search of that perfect beach. It was no surprise that his honeymoon in the Virgin Islands in 2007 brought him to the beautiful island of St. John. Christian knew immediately that his search had ended… he was home.
