I recently completed the Extreme World Races Centenary South Pole Challenge with 2 teammates. It was an expedition ski race to the South Pole. We raised several hundred thousand pounds for the charity “Keep a Child Alive”

I grew up surfing with the Voodoo Doctor Chapman, not sure if that is a good thing but it means that we surfed many types of surf and had several tempering experiences! I am a goofy foot and I like warm-water barrels.
