Who is your favorite Fox athlete of all time?
There are a couple athletes that I aspire to, Keanu Asing is someone I look up to as a pro surfer, his dedication and fire in competition is insane, along with Bede Durbidge who is constantly smashing the world’s best on tour. I watch a bit of supercross and the boys like Ken Roczen and Ryan Dungey blow me away with the speeds and aggression they have on the track. Then my good mate Matti Buys from South Africa who does the craziest flips on a wake skate is always exciting to watch.

If you are not in the water surfing, what are you doing to keep you mind/body challenged?
I love training, so it comes naturally to me to go and exercise. I work with a personal trainer at a crossfit center in Jeffrey’s Bay and amongst that, go to a local Yoga class to stay supple. I enjoy reading and watching series or movies, so that keeps me entertained while I am not surfing.
