  • Date of Birth: November 1975
  • Disciplines: Surf
  • Competitive Highlights: The Mambo Merimbula Classic
  • Home spot: Moruya, NSW
  • Favourite Spots: The beach or wherever there is wind and waves.
  • Favourite Gear: The 8m Reo and a prototype AXIS Pro Wave in cork construction.
  • Favourite Moves: I’m happy just linking a few bottom and top turns.
  • More important than kiting: My family especially my little daughter.
  • Inspiration: Kiting is it’s own inspiration for me, but there are always new videos from great kite surfers, anyone kiting heavy waves or making it look fun. I love videos of things I’ll never be crazy enough to do, like wing suit base jumping or speed riding.
  • What do you do in free time: I collect records, DJ on the local radio, play drums, ride mountain bikes, grow vegetables and make stuff.
  • What’s on your Ipod: Old Funk, Reggae, Dub, Hip-hop, Afrobeat, Jazz, and Rock. It’s a big Ipod.
  • Future plans and goals: One day we’ll head off on a kite surfari around Australia. Until then there’s lots to explore in my own backyard.
  • Dream session: Cross offshore wave riding with dolphins.
  • Other Sponsors: AXIS Kiteboards are nice to me because I do their graphic design.
  • Interesting saying: Do. Or do not. There is no try. – Yoda
