What do you like about where you live now?

The people are modest, the place is quiet and the landscape is raw.

Cloudbreak, Tavarua, Fiji

Which do you like more, Air or Tube?


Which do you like more, Noseride or Maneuver?


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

I’d say I’d go with “Dancing in Dakar” purely based on the experience. We stumbled upon that wave in a little fishing village completely by chance. The session lasted less than an hour but to see that many kids appear over the space of a few minutes and hear the screaming, cheering and sheer joy and wonder of it all was something I’ll never forget.

My Brother, My Dad, and My Mum.

All of my mate Andrew Kaineder's back catalogue.
