I started Swellbound in a bid to resurrect my love of writing and apply it to my growing surfing passion. Music, boardsports and youth culture in general are wonderful vehicles for change that I have been using through my life and career. With over 10 years in the NGO sector, using film, photography and writing, I witnessed the power of storytelling to change minds and attitudes.

Swellbound is an attempt to fill the void left by the mainstream surf media, which fails to represent the diversity I experience surfing around the world and at home. I want to share my wonder and stoke at how beautiful, inventive and life changing this diversity is, and inspire all (including myself) to make a positive difference in the world!
