I am lucky enough to have the support from Body Glove who supply me wet suits, Andy Jordan Surf Boards and also Sitka who are a new Canadian clothing company ! cheers guys
I have 3 boards at the moment i have a 6.1 Sitka pocket knife, 6.1 Andy Jordan and also a 5.10 Andy Jordan ! all 3 boards blow up super pumped on them
Where do you live:
I live in the Mount in the Bay of Plenty the most wave starved stretch of beach in this country it can get pretty dam tough !
One older sis who has a 3 year old boy so pretty cool being a uncle
When and how did I get into surfing:
Started surfing at the age of 12 with dad and ever since then i fell in love with the sport and wanted to surf as much as i could when ever i could
I have been pretty lucky with traveling i have been all over the world to places likeeee France, Morocco, Ireland, England, Mexico, Indonesia, Mentawai Islands, Fiji, Australia and all over New Zealand. Best place i have been would have to Ireland that place has so many mental slabs around every corner and you just get drained off ya nut i dream of making my way back there one day
Favourite place to surf:
A couple of sick joints like Matakana island, Whanga bar, few river mouths down the east cape and the best Maihi spit!
Stance on localism:
It sucks if your going to be the guy goin around punching people over or smashing cars like i get it to a certain degree its your spot you should in theory get the best waves of the day but if out siders come to your spot and they give you 100 percent respect chill i cant stand those guys that go around screaming like gorillas the moment you turn up and say whatsup.. because at the end of the day they will be wanting to surf at some one elses local at some point down the track.. right ?
Your perfect surf session:
Divey, Peaky and the boys 6 to 8 foot Resurants in Fiji
Touch rugby every week helps keep the blood pumping also kite surfing.
Goals for the year:
Make it to Tahiti and keep saving for my jet ski !
Most inspirational surfer:
All those under ground chargers who go hard just for the love of the sport they are the ones pushing the limits in my eyes.
Would you rather have 1 Million Dollars or Perfect waves the rest of your life:
Probably one million set myself up then go find perfect waves the rest of my life.
Thanks Mike and the crew at Body Glove for hooking me up your a pack of legends ! peace ! yew
