The freedom. Nothing better than being out in the ocean with your mates and getting some awesome waves.

Michael Jordan, Kolohe Andino and of course my dad.
Who has helped you to get to where you are today?
Dad and mum, my coach Brad Lee, Robbie Sherwell and my mentor Scano.
What is your most memorable surfing moment and why?
Winning the Carve Pro Junior and going on to qualify for the 2014 World Junior Titles. The biggest win of my career so far and the great feeling of satisfaction and pride I felt.
What's the best advice you have been given?
Always have fun, be confident in the water and believe in yourself.
What is your favourite surf spot?
I love surfing Sunset in Hawaii and Tea Tree Noosa when it turns it on.
What has been your biggest surfing achievement so far?
Same as question five.
Do you have any advice for aspiring professional surfers?
Stay focused, work hard and keep believing in yourself. There are a lot of people out there ready to put you down and you just have to keep chipping away and keep your support group close.
What are you doing when you are not surfing?
When I am not surfing I enjoy basketball, fishing and playing golf.
What is your favourite Maxum watch?
I really love my Paulo in Black. Sleek and stylish.

In 2015 I would like to be the ASP Australasia Pro Junior Champion and also finish the year in the top 100 on the WQS.
If you were not a surfer, what would you be?
That's a hard one as I don't have a back up plan. Maybe a basketball player would be cool.
