Bass Addict

Name: Darren

Job: IT Infrastructure
Years Surfing: Started early 2005
Habitat: Kingswinford, West Midlands
Boards: 2
Quiver: 'O'Shea' Custom 7'6" & 10'2" 'South Point' Longboard board
Local Break: Tywyn
Places Surfed: Tywyn, around the Gower, Fuerteventura, Portugal
Favourite Surf Films: Billabong Odyssey, Riding Giants
Worst Wipeout: Got pinned under for what seemed like minutes but was more like 10 seconds in 10 - 12 ft heavy Cotillo waves in Fuerteventura. Gasping for air as I surfaced. Not the nicest experience.
Favourite Manoeuvre: Used to be just getting to my feet after a big drop in and surviving, now its carving and attempting cutbacks.
Worst Surfing Habit: Dropping in on my mate Parksey all the time and running out of energy far too quickly!
Best Surfing Experience: Tywyn August 2005. The cleanest, most glassy 3 ft waves I've ever seen for a lovely 2 hour session. Peeling perfectly and nice long rides. Sitting out the back with Parksey and Wooman loving every minute of it.
Other Interests: 5 a side footy, playing the drums, golf, poker and drinking with the boys.
