We all know that a lot of the world’s best surfers come from the Islands. But in this case we’re talking Jersey, then England, not Oahu or Maui. Something about growing up surrounded by water. Surfing as naturally as some people walk down the street. At the intersection where power meets style. Drop knee turns, clean ten’s, laybacks and vertical hacks—they’ve won him every British title possible. But those trophies don’t tell the whole story. For that just look at that smile shining though the beard, on every wave he rides. An Island boy, through and through.
