Tell us a bit about the surf around there?

What was your last session like?

2-3 ft glassy waves at South Steyne on Sunday morning

Where else has your surfing taken you?

France, Fiji, Indonesia, Australia - east coast 

Best swell you’ve ever seen/ridden?\

Seen – 10ft Cloudbreak, Fiji.
Ridden – 4ft Restaurants, Fiji.

Dream destination?

Any uncrowded point break with longboarding waves.

When did you first pick up a camera?

When I was about 15 years old.

When did you sign up as a Coastalwatch Plus member?

1.5 year ago.

What features have you found helpful?

Live web cams and accurate forecast on my mobile phone plus the fit 2 surf training program.
