I was born in Cardiff on the 26/09/97 and lived there until i was about 7 years old. Moving to Cornwall was when i started surfing and loved it. My Dad got me into it and we ended up spending all the time we could in the water. I started competing and got picked up by Quiksilver at the age of 11.
To this day my favourite things are travelling, contests and putting video clips together. I hope to compete and get results at the Pro Juniors in these next few years while pushing my surfing to the next level.
I am stoked to be selected to represent Team Wales at the forthcoming ISA World Junior Surfing Championships in California. I am looking forward to pushing myself as far as I can in the contest and see how far I can go competing alongside the best in the world.
I recently won the U18 and Open title at the Welsh Nationals. This means I have now won 6 national titles from the U16, U18 & Open divisions. I’m still hoping to add another win or two to these successes!
