Name: Browny
Age: 29
Job: Urban Designer at an Architects practice in Cardiff
Habitat: Zooport - West Side
Boards: 1
Quiver: Its changes frequently! Never stay with the same stick for longer than a month - still looking for the 'right one to come along'. At the moment it's the worlds largest pop out - aka Que-ey, aka the QE2
Local Break: Porthcawl regular
Browny up and ridingPlaces Surfed: Wales - Rest, Coney, Southerndown, Hells Mouth. England - Cayton, North Bay Scarboro, Watergate Bay and St.Ives
Favourite Surf Films: Don't really have one. Liked Point Break when it came out ("I am an FBI Age-eent - Duuuuude!") Thought BIG Wednesday was overated and loved Riding Giants.
Worst Wipeout: Hells Mouth March 2005. Two long hold downs on the bounce and got VERY low on air. Scarborough in January 2004 - got rolled along the bed and smashed my nose about!
Browny with his latest addition to the quiver!

Favourite Manoeuvre: The one legged drop, hover and tumble. Almost perfected it.
Worst Surfing Habit: How long have we got. Let just summarise it as.. 'generally not being that good'

Best Surfing Experience: Getting changed in a hired classic VW Splitty on honeymoon in Cornwall April 2005, then having a glassy sundown session at St. Ives and seeing a Dolphin leap clean from the water. Bliss.
Weirdest Surfing Experience: Nothing especially weird to report yet.
Other Interests: fitness training, MUFC, music (Manchester bands mainly), architecture, graphic design, getting wrecked up on booze
