Favourite place to surf: My favourite place to surf is Lefties down South in Western Australia, it's a great left hander and I love it because I'm a goofy. It has heaps of different sections, a heavy take off, a barrel section and a section where you can do big carves and cutbacks and the inside section is so much fun it's where I try all my new moves.

A phrase I use far too often is... Yeah.. later and then my Mum always says "Do it now"

I wish people would take more notice of... Girls surfing cause the girls are takin it up to the guys!

The most suprising thing that ever happened to me was... Well, I was at Rabbit Hill in Yallingup when the Margaret River Pro was on and I saw a guy in the car park that looked alot like Kelly Slater and as he took his board out of the car I was sure it was him so I went up and asked for his autograph.

The ideal night out is... A night spent with my friends having heaps of fun.

You know me as a surfer but in a different kind of life I'd... Still be a surfer because I can't think of anything else I'd rather be doing.

The most favourite place you have been in the last 12months... It would have to be Margaret River, even though I go there so often, it's such a cruisy place with so many unreal waves.

What's the water temperature like where you live? In the Winter it can get really cold but in the Summer you can get away with bathers or a spring suit.

What's your favourite thing about surfing? I love the travelling involved and meeting lots of new people, surfing different types of waves and getting to try new moves.

What are your other obsessions? When there's no surf I love skating on my carve board, watching and playing footy and soccer. I love to go swimming and snorkelling, running, playing poker and eating.

What goals do you have outside surfing? Really , at the moment all the goals I want to achieve at the moment are in surfing.

What surfers inspire you the most? Heaps of good riders inspire me like Kelly Slater, Bruce Irons, Taj Burrow and Joel Parkinson but the rider that inspires me the most is Ry Craike because he is so good at everything, big turns, snaps he's a real freak and he's a West Oz boy!

When's the last time you got worked in the surf? Last time I git really worked was when I was surfing Little Jakes at Kalbarri, WA and it was about 6ft. I was getting sucked down the beach and to get in you have to climb up this ledge that's about 1 metre high. I was standing on a rock, ready to climb up onto the ledge and a set hit me and I got severley nailed on the ledge.

What training do you do? As for training, I surf as much as I can in different places, I also run and do yoga. I love to play sport and I try to eat as healthy as I can. The combination of all of these things keep me pretty fit and healthy.
