How does surf­ing make you feel?

It’s a mix of feel­ing super happy, stoked, full of en­ergy, alive and very smi­ley. The feel­ing of rid­ing a wave in a sunny place is ac­tu­ally one of the best feel­ings in the world.

What’s next on your surf trip ad­ven­ture list?

Early sum­mer Fuerteven­tura and Por­tu­gal, then at the end of the year I will spend a month in Sri Lanka.

What’s the most em­bar­rass­ing thing that has hap­pened to you in the surf?

What se­ri­ously em­bar­rass­ing is when you turn up to a new spot where there are lo­cals in the wa­ter and they usu­ally give you one chance to see if you can surf. If you f**k up that one wave you won’t have an easy time to get an­other one. I went out to a lo­cal spot in Bali, pad­dled the hard­est I could to get the wave, I made it to my feet but then my board was so slip­pery that I did a mas­sive belly splat in front of the whole line up. That gets you a few ex­tra gig­gles for sure!
