I grew up in Newquay, Cornwall, England and began bodyboarding as soon as I could swim. The last 30 years have seen me chasing swells, competition titles, magazine covers and dream waves all over the world. I've been very fortunate to have a bodyboarding career that has seen me to travel right across the globe. During this time I’ve gained unrivalled equipment knowledge from trying different boards in different countries in varied temperatures, wave conditions, the charged stress of competitions and the liberation of free surfing. So it's helped me to design a board that works, whatever the circumstances.
