    From the age of 2 my winter playground was the snow (Mt Hotham, Victoria, Australia) and my summers were spent at the beach (Ulladulla, New South Wales, Australia). Having this lifestyle in these amazing environments has allowed me to either ski or surf almost every day of my life and these sports have been my passions.

    9 years ago I was introduced to surfing in a completely different way, I was hooked on Stand Up Paddle Surfing!  My love for this sport is now as intense as my love of skiing, surfing and windsurfing. SUP surfing is the fastest growing water sport in the world currently, and I hope to be at the forefront of the sport.
