Do you have a favourite spot / training location?
Skeleton Bay Namibia or any remote location.

Who or what inspires you in your daily life?
I’m inspired by people that enjoy the outdoors and share it in there unique ways and my passion in life is to explore new untouched places and find some hidden gems.

Do you follow a special way of life?
My life consists of Surfing, Travel and Aerial Photography so i need to be ontop of my game when it comes to fitness and being creative so i make sure i live a healthy lifestyle and have fun keeping active.

What is the best place on earth?
I have travelled to some awesome places in my life but I’ve got to say South Africa is the best! Its got some of the best waves in the world with very minimal crowed and some of the best wild life and landscapes! And of course the people are very friendly.

If you could pick two surfers (dead or alive) to go surf with, who would they be and where would you go?
I’d have to choose Andy Irons and Jordy Smith and I’d probably like to go to a place with perfect right points with warm water.

What are your goals for 2018? What do you want to achieve next?
My goals for 2018 is to travel to a couple new surf destinations and create some amazing content. And to also make it into the World Championship Tour event in JBay again!

One quote about SWOX?
Swox is an amazing sunblock company and seems like an amazing team backing the brand so I’m extremely happy to be representing such a great brand! I got to know the company through Jordy Smith after using his Swox i haven’t used anything better.
