a few years
-What inspired you to get a sponge under your belly?
I rode surfboard for a bit when i was like 9 or 10 and then i went out on my brothers O&E and it was just natural progression, gave up stick and started chargong sponge.

and hopefully an Elit' team design PE soon
-Do you reckon you'll still be tearing up on the sponge in 20 years time?
I hope so.
-What are your favourite sorts of waves (barrels/wedges/reefs/beachies etc) ?
Barrels/WEDGING A FRAMES and good reefs.
-Would You Rather Bodyboard 25Foot Waimea Bay Shorey or Bodyboard 10foot Dry Pitching Cyclops?
I think I would have more chance surviving the 25ft Waimea Shorey.
-You Are Bodyboarding 10foot Nuggan And A Section Loom's Up Infront Of You - Would You Rather Pull Into That Section And Get The Barrel of A Lifetime or Launch Of That Section And Pull A Massive Tweaked Invert.
Pull in and then boost a lofted air forward out of that barrel.
-Assuming you had the skillz of Ryan Hardy (prone) or Roach (DK) - what move would you make in the end section after a pumping barrel at Hawaii Pipe?
Hmmm if i was Hardballs then i'd probably bust a huge inverse
-You now have the wallet of Richard Branson (super rich dude). You can pick a country anywhere in the world (but only one) to find fresh breaks in and sponge your brains out - where would you choose to go?
Probably Bali, close to home, super good, mad chilled lifestyle, what more could you want?

Products reviews and a charger section, filled with pics of only pure charging. 20 foot shippies, dry clops, dry chopes, the wedge, and locals
