I’m born and bred on the points of Noosa Heads, Australia. I’ve been surfing all my life and competing professionally for the past 20 years. During this time I have been lucky enough to compete around the world and do some amazing photo and vid trips to some of the best waves on our planet and meet some incredible characters. I’ve also had a bit of success too… a World Title, 6 Australian Titles, and some 51 career titles.
With this success I’ve been fortunate to work alongside and gain insight into some of the best shapers and legends in the industry Bob McTavish, Bob Cooper, Donald Takyama, Timmy Patterson, Greg Brown, Dave Boyd, Garth Day, Chris McCutchinson, …just to name a few.
Creative Army is a kaleidoscope of all these experiences, waves and relationships and a voice for my story through Creative Army’s designs, lines and shapes. Each board is handmade and no two completely identical, making each surfboard a one of a kind piece of art that’s as individual as you. I feel Creative Army reflects my true belief in keeping it pure and to the highest standard. All my boards are inspired by traditional templates, but made with the modern surfer in mind. With a contemporary fashion palette, they are made to make the beginner surf better and the more advanced push themselves to their limit.
I’ve had pleasure shaping, testing and perfecting these boards on the points at home in Noosa with my family and friends. I hope they will inspire your surfing and get you out in the line up and experience the feeling of stoke and trimming down the line.
