I come from a fantastic Right hand Point break, and in winter we are spoilt with world class waves.  I followed my brother Luc onto a surf board from the age of 8, also as a goofy foot and have never looked back.  We travel all over South Africa to compete in our SSA Comps, and enjoy getting so much experience on our countries varies breaks.  With SA East Coast majority of our waves are right hand point breaks, and I enjoy blowing up on my back hand.
