I'm from England but am lucky enough to spend most of my time between Maui, Chile and the PWA world tour.

I love windsurfing and surfing big waves, small waves, ANY waves! It's all good fun and I think that any time spent on the water makes you better at all aspects in all sports, whether it is surfing, windsurfing, SUP’ing or kiting.

I'd have to say that my favourite days are the full adrenaline days, wave riding massive waves or jumping on really windy days where you can fly as high as you like. I've had a few epic days recently wave riding in Chile and jumping in Gran Canaria and every time I have a day like that I realize how lucky I am to be a professional windsurfer.

My best results on the PWA in waves have been 3rd overall in waves twice in 2005 and 2009. Before that I came 3rd in Freestyle in 2003 and Super X in 2004. I had a few injuries, breaking my foot in 2005, 2006 and again in 2011 but I'm back to full fitness now and want to get back on the podium again this year!
