FAVOURITE SURFER OF ALL TIME? Kelly

SHARK STORY? I saw one the size of a small submarine in Africa last year. Thankfully it was from the safety of my balcony, the erased all ideas I had of going for a surf that afternoon.
BEST BOARD? Probably one I have right now, 6’1 x 18 1’2 x 2 1/4 zanex model. Everyone should get one
DREAM SURF TRIP? Think I have done a lot of my dream trips but I have to go to Namibia.
BEST PLACE TO DRINK A BEER? Down the coast after a big day of surfing in front of the outdoor BBQ
CURRENT WHIP? Nissan Murano, its pretty.
BEST BARREL? Cook islands, 2008. Filmer was changing batteries and missed it, photog got out of position shooting the first wave in the set so shots are blurry but it’s in my head in slow motion. Biggest barrel of my life for sure!
ROCKSTAR, FORMULA 1 DRIVER OR PRO SURFER? WHY? Done the pro surfer thing but would love to of stayed on there. Not into cars so would have to say rockstar plainly for the lifestyle (and girls).
FAV. TUNES LISTENING TO? Secret Hands, Melbourne based guy and he has some crisp tunes.
