Growing up I always aspired to be on the cover of NZ Surf Mag as the guys on the cover have always been some of the best surfers in NZ. Certain covers have inspired me to be the surfer I am today and my favourite cover was issue 128 in 2009, Billy Stairmand doing a frontside tail woft shot from the water, that cover inspired me to push my surfing to the next level. Getting the cover of NZ Surf is definitely my biggest achievement in surfing so far, as it's harder than winning a contest!
