Q&A

Hobbies:
Anything in or on the water
Best day in my life:
The day I qualified for the Stand Up World Tour after coming 5th in the trials at 15 years old. Paddling against Caio Vaz in 8 foot surf the next day was pretty much a baptism of fire though?.
Best day possible:
Early surf in pumping beachbreak waves, then home for breakfast. Midday SUP session on a long right hand point break. Afternoon windsurfing session in side shore wind with fun-sized waves until dusk. Go out with my friends in the evening.
Best 'vacation':
First trip to Jeffreys Bay in December 2014. Paddled and surfed amazing waves from dawn till dusk, slept on a kitchen floor in a Canadian guys house.
