What is your favourite wave and why?
Kirra, AUS – I guess I got lucky. A few years ago I lived in Australia right on North Kirra for 5 months. I was (supposed to be) going to school. For whatever, really great, reason they decided not to pump any sand out of snapper during that winter. A bunch of cyclones hit, they were calling it one of the best winters in 20 years (Kirra partially re-birthed itself) and we had front door access. I have never been so barrelled in my life. Stand up, draining tubes for days. It was . . . amazing.
What other hobbies or activities do you enjoy?
I like to snowboard, and wakeboard, and occasionally skateboard. I am obsessed with Football (gridiron), and heavily enjoy basketball. After breaking my foot, unable to surf for 3 months, I’ve found myself really excited about filming and editing video. I’m a rookie, but pretty jazzed about rock climbing – it’s fairly comparable and complimentary to surfing. I also love playing video games, board games, and card games. Puzzles are enjoyable too. I get super into sewing sometimes, I have a sewing machine – it comes in handy.
Who and what infuluences your life?
My attempt is to allow Jesus to fully take over my life and lead the way. I am human (clearly) and so I often fail. But God is good, his grace is perfect, and my failures are forgiven – and usually helpful stepping stones to a better future. I really enjoy people. We are created in such an interesting and unique fashion. My hope is to approach life in a way that allows anyone and everyone to show me something great.
How do you want to be remembered?
As an interesting dude who loved on people.
