SEAN KET­TLE

New Zealand Surfing - - FIRSTS -

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!

This is­sues cover­boy has all the moves that will see him with many more cov­ers to come. Photo: Cory.
