Experiencing new places and meeting new faces.

I really enjoy keeping fit, healthy, hanging out with friends and family, playing golf, anything to stay active. Travelling on the hunt for waves is my favorite thing to do. I love surfing new destinations, experiencing new places and meeting new faces.

Spent 2013 traveling and focusing all my energy towards ‘Carpark Stories’, a surf movie Toby Cregan and myself are releasing with Waves Magazine early 2014. Its a mixture of trips from throughout the year, including Shippies, Southern states of Aus and Indo. Although edited by Toby, Darcy filmed the majority of trips, which is where we struck up a relationship and the idea for ITBOAE was founded.

Growing up in a small town has shaped my personality and influenced the way I behave in and out of the water. It has molded the way I approach surfing. I thrive on pushing myself in big waves while attempting to keep up in high performance waves. I appreciate all that I have and happy with where my life is at.

I want to work hard on progressing my surfing and myself as a person. I lik e the challenge of working on a project or towards a goal. The sense of achievement makes it all worthwhile. In 2013, I was lucky enough to be chosen to partake in an online surfing voting competition.

Surfing Australia and Original Source combined to hold the Intense Challenge competition, where 15 big wave surfers showcase monthly clips to be voted on by the public. The level of surfing was outstanding and I was honored to be involved.
