What gets you stoked? Anything to do with surfing stokes me but, Huge rail turns, barrels, and airs are the best.
Who is in your tribe? @bellaassink, @kianmartin, @samsurf, @varuntandjung and @bededurbo.
What do you do when you are not surfing all day? I like to hang out with my family. Most days when it's flat we go skateboarding or fishing.
What is a Grom? An absolute FROTHER!!
What moves are you working on this week? Big Punts.
What is your favorite thing about the ocean? The ocean always gives you good vibes and that is why I love it so much.
Early morning offshore or Afternoon glass off? Early morning offshore because we don't really get afternoon glass off sessions on the Sunshine Coast.
Post surf Grinds? I have a shower first, then go smash food and go through the video that dad just filmed.
Inspirations? Julian Wilson is a good role model inside and out of the water. I look up to him because he leads a healthy lifestyle and sets a good example. I also like Connor McGregor because he is so determined to win all of his fights.
Dream Trip? I would love to go to Lowers in California. It looks so perfect. It is probably crowded, but who cares.
Where do you want to be in 2020? Surfing and traveling the globe. I would hope that I would be taking the right steps to be getting close to making it on the World Tour.
Wave Pools or the Ocean? The Ocean for sure because it is so much more unpredictable and natural.
What is your first memory of the ocean? Going down straight down the line at a wave called "Little Cove" at Noosa and loving every second of that ride.
