One thing we don't know about you?
I am an avid sports fan. I love watching nearly every sport on TV!

Just me and a few mates out and a perfect right hand reef or shingle bar that's barreling for 200m. I can't get enough of getting barreled!

I have a couple of amazing memories from a certain place South of here. I can't give away the location unfortunately haha. All I will say is shingle bars are the best thing in the world!
Advise for newbies?
Surfing takes time, but if you put in the effort and catch the bug it will give you the best lifestyle one can ask for.
Go to Board?
Andy Jordan has been my shaper since I first got into surfing. Loving my new 5'10 'semi pud' he shaped me. Perfect all round board for NZ waves.
Fav Creatures accessory? 
Love their new tail pad range! I love having a high kick to plant my foot and his signature pad is 35mm high so it's perfect.
