Growing up mostly on the Sunshine Coast in Australia, it was almost bound for me to pick up surfing at some stage. This weekend activity has slowly bloomed into a full blown love affair taking me to some of the weirdest and most wonderful places on this planet. Through these trips I have met some of the most amazing people and heard some of the most incredible stories. I attempt to document these stories in the ways that I hear them, no formal training, and no real jazzy writing techniques - just the stories of people who usually wouldn’t be heard of. It brings a certain smile to people’s faces when you ask about their life, whether that be through formal conversation or a broken down mixture of two languages, and it is a smile that you don’t easily forget.
