Go-to surfboard:

My quiver consists of a 5’10 goosebump by Z shapes which is a great all rounder shortboard for down here, however I also really enjoy my 9’6 Mctavish Log and 9’1 thruster longboard for winter in the naturalist Cape and some Yallingup balmy sunset sessions.

Best surf travel experience:

I have recently been to the Mentawai’s where I was there for a month surfing and staying at Pitstop Hill Resort where I had the most amazing experience. Waves were perfection, so many surf breaks working with different winds and swell directions, the bintangs always cold and met some amazing people amongst the incredible culture. The trip was the best ones yet and I look forward to head back there in the near future to surf and hopefully work.

Magical powers to change the world:

Keep surfing and smiling.
