A day in the life
I really couldn’t imagine living a better life than being a surfer. It’s so simple, yet so rewarding. Just running down to the surf in the morning and paddling out makes me so happy to be alive. I live life to the fullest with no regrets.
I’ve always been a bit of a gypsy as a travelling surfer the last 20 years, moving around following the seasons and basing my life around the ocean. Being based on the Gold Coast has many upsides with everything at your fingertips, but the crowds and lack of swell keep me watching the maps for any opportunity to jump on a plane to a remote destination and chase a swell.
I’m normally up early and I’ll set the alarm the night before if I know there’s going to be waves. I always start the day with a shake and help a lot of people with their health, which is what I do for work. I’m really lucky it allows me to travel when I want and work from anywhere.
If there’s no surf I normally go for a swim or hit the gym, I love to stay in shape ready for whatever the ocean throws at me. The rest of the day, I’m usually connecting with people or doing something fun. I have a really good life and I’m so grateful to be working with the team at the Surfboard Warehouse, its a great environment with top qaulity products.
