I grew up surfing the Peak and the slabs surrounds Bundoran, Ireland. I surfed on the Irish National Team from age 12, and competed in some pro juniors, throughout my surfing years as a junior.

I then went on to Study Theoretical Physics at UCL in London with an interest in questions on the nature of fundamental reality. With some newer motivations I was contemplating on physicality of the body, I went back into physical training with a broader scope than just surfing, which led me to train in performative dance for some years.

The experience of Physics and Dance led me back to surfing as a coach, having a renewed vigor on surfing, now being able to analyse the performance and movement of surfing through analytical and creative frames of choreography, ballet, contemporary dance, meditation, math and physics. I like the use of powerful ideas and actions to find more clarity in the practise of achieving excellence. Using the mind to unlock the possibilities of the body.




My motivation to compete is to discover new and better ways of distilling knowledge about surfing performance, as a form of conceptual technology, so that I can help people find more clarity in their own journey's. And to build better pathways for future generations.
