Surf history

Freddy has lived all over the world, and with the perfect surf sports right at his doorstep. He found his passion for big wave surfing while he was travelling all over the world, catching the best waves, and familiarising himself with different wave conditions. Freddy is always looking for the next challenge, and he loves the combination of surfing and nature. So if you can’t find him on a night out in the city, he’s definitely out there somewhere, stoked and surfing waves, or looking for other ways to get his adrenaline pumping.
