  • Hobbies / I love surfing and stand up paddle surfing. I enjoy anything adventurous.
For my 18th birthday my family brought me a 7'0 stand up paddleboard and ever since I have been hooked!

I am now 23 years old and its pretty amazing where this sport has taken me over the years.

I ride for SMIK sup, Scott McKercher is the man behind all these boards.

He designs simple perfromance- oriented boards which make you want to stay out there because your having too much fun!

I love all watersports such as shortboarding and recently I have been learning to wing foil.

I had a last minute call up for the opportunity to compete in the ISA titles in Perto Rico. My partner and I have been travelling around Australia for the last three months and I was excited by the opportunity. 

After some long rigorous years of COVID lockdowns and with SUP taking a backseat, My attention has turned on to other endeavours. However I'm really excited to jump back in and to see what Perto Rico has in store. I'm also keen to see where the level of SUP competition now stands and link up with some incredible athletes again. 

I'm So fortunate to have Smik on-board for me. A recently big and exciting change.

I wouldnt be able to be here without the support of my family, friends and my girlfriend. 

Hope we have a great event and can't wait to see what's in store.
