What is your most memorable moment in your sports?

Dropping into my biggest wave ever in Fuerteventura. And getting a podium spot at the Welsh Open.

Favourite conditions?

Surfing: Clean overhead and powerful. Longboard: Empty, wide, smooth road.

Favourite toys?

My spider Hydro-X and Osprey skate!

What is your diet like?

Lots of food! Mostly fruit and veg and lean meats. Popcorn and olives to snack on. Treat myself to a pizza once a week.

What things do you currently do in your training that are key to your success?

Stay positive, never admit to yourself that the surf is bad and try and see the good in every session. You can still work on your paddle when its flat and you can certainly train in 6ft walls of whitewater too.

Best advice anyone’s ever given you?

Stay true to yourself

Do you have a saying or motto you live life by?

Commit to the drop

What would be your ultimate achievement?

There are so many, I want to win a national title, but I also want to inspire young people to chase their dreams.

Anything else you would like to share?
