“I was just lucky to be home for a big swell at ‘Shipstern’s’ and it was such a nice day with some big sets so I went for a swim. Mikey Brennan did most of the work for this image. I’m so grateful to have my best mates charging ridiculous waves at home, what a place to be a photographer! A huge thanks to Surfing Australia and Nikon for putting these awards on year after year.”
