I’ve spent my whole life out in the sun and since I was 16 years old I’ve had to wear glasses. I’ve tried contacts and looked into laser but neither option was suitable for my eyes so I’m left with glasses. The good news is that my prescriptions have never changed, in fact my eye sight has got better. And unlike many of my friends, my pterygiums have never grown any bigger cause I’ve always been forced to wear glasses. SPY has been amazing for me; their prescription lenses are epic and the frames are really solid but lightweight. I pretty much wear them from the time open my eyes to the time I close them.

At the risk of turning my Instagram into a fishing page (i promise I still kite too 😜) I wanted to share this little clip from a recent trip to @namotuisland because you can not only come kiting with me, but fishing too. I’m spending a lot more time there lately and we have some very exciting things in the works... more on that soon. But in the meantime if you’re curious about the types of fishing and species around that part of the Pacific, head on over to the link in my bio to watch the mini doc with @adammelling, @beau_blake_ & @sneaky_fisho_dylo. We run fishing charters out of @namotuisland and they’re pretty insane.

I'm from Merimbula so the Merimbula Classic has been a big part of my life since it's beginning but it's always been my favourite competition event too. The characters, the format and of course Merimbula is one of the best places in the world! If you're a kiter and haven't been to this event you are missing something really special.

Watch the mini doco to see why the event and its people are truly one-of-a-kind.

Right now I’m sitting at the airport waiting to get back to my favourite place on earth, Namotu Island Resort ,Fiji. I was there not long ago with Dyllon Schulz & Adam Melling doing a bunch of topwater fishing on the Island’s charter boat, the Mitaia Rua. We spent a few days targeting a range of species and made a mini movie. See you soon!
