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.

What can I say surfing is in our blood. When I came to Noosa I was astounded that no one was using my paddling manoeuvre ( The Turtle) I have been turtling for years and now I see world champs like Josh using it and Wally the Barbadian champ copying MY moves. But that is fine I am happy to share.I believe the Noosa Malibu Club is lucky to have me. So next time you throw in a turtle to get you on that set wave , just give a little COWABUNGA for me!

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!
