Born in Sumatra, loved watching surfers rip it up at Paradise South Sumatra Surf Camp as a young grom. Became the Big Wave Guru of Bangkulu at Pantai Panjang in his early teenage years. Moved to Hatteras, North Carolina, for his high school years where he perfected his “Flying High Wire” act on the Outer Banks. Had some harrowing wipeouts in the aftermath of Hurricane Isabel. Undaunted, he’s been on a World Surfin’ Safari ever since. Spends his winters in Cocoa Beach, loves using what he learned at Paradise South to inspire and teach grommets how to bust out their very own Big Air Space Coast moves!
