Our next guest comes from Yallingup West Oz. His dad is a surfer and one of the Australian pioneers of surfing. He had siblings that helped push him along and fired up his competitive side.Early in his career he had a trainer that really laid the foundation for how to be a “competitor”. He humbly states not to be the most talented surfer, but having the desire, focus, & determination helped grind out some monumental wins in his professional surfing career!!

“The funs done!!” it’s time the hang up the old passport! I have decided (with the help of Covid) to take a full time job with @wearefeelgoodinc sunscreen (try some it’s amazing) mixed emotions for me. It has been super rewarding coaching kids to reach there goals and achieve there dreams as well as teach a couple of life lessons along the way I hope. I got to coach 5 guys from the QS onto the CT tour, also got to hang out with @stephaniegilmore for one of her 7 world titles!!(very cool) . Created Snaketales clips which I hope you all liked! Thanks @stephenisbelly for getting me started. To all the Snaketales crew , old and new, Thank you for trusting me with your careers. Plain and simple, I love coaching and going to miss it big time. ✌️
