What do you like about where you live now?

The National Parks.

Which one video would you highlight in this playlist and why?

Harrison Roach - Bells Beach

That was really a special day for me and a cool experience. I was riding the board that I've never ridden before. I think it's a special place and a special wave. I like the way that video turned out.

When and how did you start surfing?

I was a little boy at the beach, and I saw the big boys doing it, so I wanted to do it as well.

Where is your go-to surf spot?

Sunshine Beach

Please tell us about the surfboard you usually ride. Brand, shaper, dimensions, fin setup, etc.

I ride different boards all the time because that's what excites me about surfing.

Where are your favorite surf spots that you've been to?


Where are the surf spots you want to visit in the future that you've never been to?


Which do you like more, Noseride or Maneuver?

I don't like either more. Because I think they're both maneuvers, and they both serve a different purpose. You can't have one without the other in my eyes, particularly with longboarding.

Who are the surfers that inspire you?

Thomas Bexon and Bryce Young

What are the surf films/videos that inspire you?

156 Tricks

What are the films/movies that inspire you? (other than surf films)

I have a lot, but I don't know where to start…

Other than surfing, what are you passionate about?

My garden.

Who are your favorite bands and musicians?

I can't choose; it's like asking me about my favorite surfboards.
