So, rumour has it you outta here!? What’s the deal?
Yea...it's time for a new adventure!
Where you going to be bailing to?
I'm moving to Perth, Australia.
How come, just over the ou’s dropping in on you here in PE, or what?
Haha yea just fully over it hey...jokes. I finished studying at NMMU last year and I feel as if it's time for a new adventure! I have this incredible opportunity to move so I'm going to try to make the most of it!
So you reckon Perth won’t be so bad with hussling?
Perth is an Australian city so it's probably way worse than PE! I was over there in July last year and all the breaks were super crowded!
What sorta surf are you expecting over there?
Well Perth doesn't get much swell...I'd be better off surfing Denvilles for the rest of my life! But 4 hours south there are waves like Margret River, Yallingup, Smiths, the Box...it's always been a dream of mine to surf the Box! Perth is also really close to Bali etc. a 4 hour flight I think? I'm going to miss having the luxury of surfing all the time!
Immediate plans on landing? Job, study, lurk, surf?
All of the above really...only planning on getting a permanent job next year but something might come up sooner. I'm really over studying!
When you climbing onto the plane and waving goodbye?
Sunday, 9 June...it's soooo soon!
Heard things got a lil messy at your farewell party at the yacht club – something about R8 draft beers??
Happy hour at the yacht club was quite a treat! Just got to have a few drinks and laughs with friends before I leave. R8 draughts and some mates = a good time! Was so tempting that even John Scheepers pulled in for a couple!
So you cool for ou’s to pull in and do some couch surfing if they in that part of the world?
Yea sure! As long as you don't pick fights with Aussie locals hey!
Any other ex-PE peeps in Perth you’ll be able to hook up with?
Dylan Macleod moved over in Feb. So at least I'll know someone from PE that surfs! Although I think he’s on daddy duty for now!!
PE will always be home! Thanks to everyone I've surfed with in PE for the good times and good waves. The PE crew are something special and will be missed. PE is an amazing city and our waves aren't thaaaat bad! Hope millerslocal will keep me in the loop with PE surfing :)
