What is the best part about growing up in Cronulla? There is such a variety of different waves. We have beaches, reefs & slabs.

What do you love most about your family? They support me with my surfing and take me everywhere I need to go.

What is your favorite thing about the ocean? The waves are always different and it can be really relaxing.

Early morning offshore or Afternoon glass off? Afternoon glass off because the waves are more rippable and there is a good sunset to watch.

Dream Trip? Where and why you want to go there? And with who? Macaronis in the Mentawais because it is the most perfect wave and I would go with my friends.

Post surf Grinds? In the morning I have a bowl of cereal, but on the weekend, at lunchtime, we skate to the corner shop for bacon and egg rolls.

Inspirations in or out of the water? I have known Connor O’Leary @connoroleary since I was really little & he worked at the surf school @cronullasurfingacademy Connor inspires me because he is always so nice to me & I hope I can make it on tour one day like him.

Where do you want to be in 2024? In 5 years time I would like to be qualifying on the WSL.

Wave Pools or the Ocean? The ocean is better when the waves are good but wave pools are fun because they are so consistent.

How do you Keep the Vibe Alive? It’s easy … I just love surfing that much!

Who is your favorite Gudauskas brother? Pat Gudauskas because he designed my favorite board model – the Fever.

What is your first memory of the ocean? My dad pushing me onto waves.
