About Me


Hi there,

I have been involved in CS for about six year's now both hosting and surfing as I go. I grew up in sunny Scotland in a small town on the west coast called Irvine.I have been traveling since Jan 09 and loved every second of it. I have a great love for the ocean and teaching people all I can about it.I try and live for the moment and make my own luck in life. I have a great family and amazing friends and have tried to make the most of my one shot in life,by making my main goal to just be happy.


Good things happen to good people. :)

Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. - Mark Twain

The miracle is not to walk on water. The miracle is to walk on the green earth, dwelling deeply in the present moment and feeling truly alive.- Thich Nhat Hanh
