I Started surfing when I was 9 years old. My family spent a lot of the time at the beach, I guess it all started from there.
Growing up on the Central Coast, surfing beaches like Copacabana and Avoca I've always surfed with my brother Josh as well as Ace (Adrian Buchan) and Wilko (Matt Wilkinson). They both rip and help me out with advice for my surfing, its awesome.
Although I haven't been competing very long my biggest achievement would be winning the u14's Dripping Wet Summer Series event at Freshwater in Sydney. I think this is my most memorable win because my brother Josh won the u16's in the same event.
My favorite surf spot is Box Head on the Central Coast. It doesn't get good very often, but when it does it is a goofy footers dream! Other than Box I love surfing left wedges with good air sections.
My goals for this year are to try and make & win as many u16's finals as I can and get really good and consistent at airs.In the future I'd like to win the Australian Junior Series then one day my ultimate would be to compete on the World Tour, traveling the world surfing for a living.
It's so awesome to be back surfing for O'Neill this year. They have signed me for the next 3 years which I'm stoked about, and its going to be good having Jarrad Howse coaching and mentoring us. Since I've been back in the O'Neill product I haven't taken my Hyperfreak board shorts off, they are so stretchy and awesome to surf in.
