Most inspirational surfer of all time, and why?

To maintain sanity.

I Graduated MBBCh at the University of Witwatersrand, South Africa, in 2018. Since then, have done a post-grad diploma in emergency medicine. Enjoyed some HEMS and Aviation medicine work. Lately, I have been loving working in Anaesthesia and plan to stick to this for the foreseeable future

Anything else about yourself:

Surfing comes before all, but I am also a passionate cook, distiller, guitarist, swimmer, hiker, martial artist, scuba diver, and surf lifeguard, and have an unhealthy obsession with growing bonsai.
