About you and how you got to surfing:
It all started out in a desperate attempt at trying to make the Australian lifestyle my own. Joined the Melb uni surf club and listened to people who had been on wild trip to cactus beach. I borrowed a chunk of a longboard strapped it to me holden commodore and blackmailed me friend into driving with me to Perth. Constant tire blow outs, a new and leaking engine block, an image that came with the board that I could not up hold in the water..all this never stood in the way of my determination to make this Australian ocean dream my own. This was about 10 years ago and I haven’t looked back since. I love surfing but most of all I love the ocean. I love being close to it. Being in it. Submerging myself. I love how it teaches me patience and giving in and letting go and going with what comes your way while making the most of it.
Local break: in between breaks; trying to make the local Fijian breaks my own currently..just lacking a boat and shallow reef courage. All the time in the world though.
What I love about surfing: Dawns and light hitting the water and surprise wildlife and concurring mental and being able to let go and not be in control and going with what feels right and being a part of the ocean at whatever place you are.
What I hate about surfing: Misplaced attitude, but that goes for life in general.
