BIO:

I am currently in my first year of uni at St Andrews in Scotland studying Geography, although a bit chillier than Cornwall I am excited to explore the area and find some new fun spots. My aim for the next few years is to travel as much as I can in-between uni and comps (with a road trip around Europe already planned for summer) so I can surf new places and hopefully take my surfing to the next level.
