BIO:

 

I am 18 years old and from North Devon. I have just returned from Morocco where I won the Euro Junior Longboard title. 2016 was a good year winning not only the European title but also the British and English Junior titles. I also finished 4th on the British Men's tour and 3rd in the British Single Fin division. I am a member of Saunton Hotdoggers Longboard club and regularly participate in club events. I am currently living in Plymouth where I am doing a Mathematics degree at Plymouth University. Whilst I compete on longboards, I enjoy riding all boards. particularly twin fins and single fin shortboards and single fin logs.
