What’s your favorite board of the range and when do you ride it?

My favourites are everything I have ever got from Fanatic!!!! The Prowaves are that sleek and sexy and my Firefly shortboards are ridiculous and soooo strong which is just what I need for some of the heavier reefs I surf around home!!!!!

How does it feel getting hammered in Shipsterns with a SUP hangin on your ankle?

Its the s@#test ever... Hahahaha, but seriously... Getting wiped out there with a SUP on a ten footer is way more gnarly than wiping out on an 18 footer getting towed in!!!! You put so much effort getting in so your heartrate is raised and Co2 is high, you wanna breath as soon as you go down but it can spank you so hard and you nearly always hit the bottom... Fortunately I have been pretty lucky injury wise... Walking down stairs is usually more challenging for me!!!

Tasmanian State Champion 2014

Your favourite contest and why:

Soundtrack of your life:

SUP for me is like…

...sex and chocolate, plus its a great way to stay in shape!

To fly!!!!!!

If you could be another person for a day, who would you be?
