Bio:

I have been surfing for the last 5 years. I feel surfing with my mates, the awesome Spider Boards, the high standard coaches and high level surfers has pushed the boundaries of my sport making me hungry to do better. I started competing in 2013 and didn’t get great results so I committed myself to fitness training for the 2014 season. I came back that year and made a finals appearance at the English Nationals coming 3rd. My goal was then set to get more consistent heat results making finals, which led up to a win. In 2015 I made more finals coming 3rd in the Ripcurl Grom Search and the UK Pro Am.

Over the winter I continued to surf on a daily basis and keep up my fitness training so that I could surf Newquay’s notorious big wave the ‘Cribbar’ and during January 2016, I achieved that goal and became the youngest person, at aged 15 years, to surf the wave.

In the current 2016 season I have made 4 finals. I finished 3rd in the Valentines juniors and 4th in the Mens Open. I also came 4th in the Night Surf and the British Schools.
