  • Why do you surf Spider boards? I look to Spider for the experience in knowing what will work for me. His boards are already proven shapes under the feet of champions and I can feel my surfing progressing now I am riding them too. This is the first surfboard sponsor which I have yet to sell any of the boards on. I enjoy them too much to part with any shapes and probably will just keep them all.

BIO:

I was a late starter to surfing at 20 years old and spent my first few years landlocked in Manchester. I only really started improving with a move to Newquay in 2011 which allowed me to spend every day in the sea. I’ve now been competing since 2012.

I am truly a competition surfer at heart although I pursue freesurfing and enjoy making videos and photo features for Surfgirl, Curl and Misadventure Mag to name a few. I see the biggest improvements in my surfing just before a contest and i think it is because I am focused on a goal.

My dream is to win a national title and to improve opportunities in the UK for female and senior surfers. Oh, and one day i’d like to visit Durban and go surf with Spider!
