The beach makes Zach feel...
"Relaxed. Whether you're lying out on the beach or you're out in your boat or sailing, it's very comforting to leave everything that you have going on in your life on shore. You know? You just leave it."

A good beach to Paige is...
"All about the soft sand and the clear water. Clearwater Beach has baby powder sand, so you don't even really need a beach towel to lie on. It's just so soft. And when it's stingray mating season, all the stingrays are coming up and down the beach, and we even have dolphins, so there's a lot of animal life."
