I’m 17 and I live in St ives.  I’ve only been fully surfing and living near the sea for a year. I used to live in Nottingham, the furthest place you could get from the sea so I moved from there to live with my grandparents in St Ives so that I could surf everyday.

I’ve been surfing since I was really little but I could only surf during the summer holidays and when I got a bit older dragged by parents over to Scarborough for a day or two surfing where I won this local comp they had on there. I haven’t surfed many places but my favourite spot has to be Porthmeor as that’s where I learnt to surf and where I spend most of my time.
