Team Rider For Quiksilver

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.

Welsh Team Rider

I am stoked to have represented my country, Team Wales, at the ISA World Junior Surfing Championships in California. After surfing for Great Britain previously in Nicaragua and Ecuador this year I changed over to Team Wales and the vibe was amazing. I look forward to surfing for them again in the future.

6x Welsh Championships Wins

I recently won the U18 and Open title at the Welsh Nationals. This means I have now won 7 national titles from the U16, U18 & Open divisions. I’m still hoping to add another win or two to these successes!
