Growing up on Hastings Street in the 60′s and early 70′s was the start of my addiction to Noosa and it’s world famous surf breaks. Most days sharing my playground of Main Beach and the points with just my four siblings and a handful of locals! Moving to Sunshine Beach in 1974 (thought to be the end of the earth in those days!!), I found that surfing the Opens with little or no company was both fun and scary at times. I am truly grateful and humbled by my blessed surfing life and my biggest thrill is sharing special days in the surf with friends and especially my family. Surfing perfect Noosa point waves has been described as like having a cup of tea with god, if so then I have had to top up my cup hundreds of times over 40 years of surfing Noosa.

After moving to the Noosa area in 2015 and always wishing I could surf. I finally got the courage to start learning in late 2017, with my daughter Ella. We joined the Noosa Malibu Club a year later and love the monthly comps, together with the comradery and sense of community, which comes from being an active club member. While still a mediocre surfer, I love the sport and relish sharing it with my kids and other surfers. I took on the role of Treasurer in 2021 and enjoy being part of the NMC Committee.

I first jumped on a surfboard in 1964 at Mount Maunganui in NZ - a 35 pound log my sister had bought for 5 quid – I was hooked and an Atlas Woods ‘light weight’ 9’4″ quickly followed. The 70′s and 80′s saw me riding 4’11″ twin fins, side slippers, eggs, the 90’s riding old man shortboards and finally Mals in the new millenium at beaches up north from Auckland, the Coromandel and the best of all – Piha on the West Coast. I worked in Corporate IT for 35 years before bailing and heading to Noosa for warmer climes and better surf. My wife Donna and I managed The Lookout Noosa Resort for 5 years, which allowed me to walk to First Point for a surf. During my time in Noosa I have met many warm and friendly Noosa folk (yes, that even includes the crew at First Point) and have surfed absolutely amazing waves on all the Points. Donna and I are here to stay!
