Favourite Surf Films: Endless Summer 1 - it's so happy and fluffy, Shimmer, Green Iguana, Sprout, Young Guns 3 and Reels 1-14
Worst Wipeout: Any resulting in injury; I seem to be a bit accident prone, so it's probably best to give me a bit of space...drop in at your own risk...
Favourite Manoeuvre: I wish! surfing

Worst Surfing Habit: 1. Getting very excited about small surf. 2. Trying to catch everything, instead of taking a breather between waves. 3. Not paddling hard enough.
Best Surfing Experience: Any involving seals (they have cute whiskers); any session where I achieve something new for the first time; or simply being out with friends at sunset, even if it's almost flat.
Other Interests: Films, gardening, being out in the countryside and hugging.
Claim to Shame: Raised in Cornwall, half a mile from a lovely remote, uncrowded beachbreak, but didn't learn to stand up surf until recently. Ooops.
