Originally from Levin but moved to Taranaki at the end of 2017, Tash has been surfing since she was 9 years old and got into competitive surfing around 11.
She loves competing and free surfing. One of her favorite results is 1st in the U16 girls at the NZ nationals in Taranaki in front of all her friends and family.

Dan is a waterman, drawn to the sea at a young age dad taught him to surf at 4, he began snorkelling at 5 and got his first speargun at 10 years old.
Dans passion for the water is intense, he has worked as surfing competition judge and surf instructor for the past 7 years all over New Zealand.
Having him as part of the crew connects us with the Scuba market and the general waterman scene. His photos are amazing and his passion second to none.
“I do underwater photography because I want to share my incredible underwater experiences with people and show them how special the ocean is in the hope it encourages them to A) respect it and B) look after it a bit more.”

Trav lives and breathes surfing, a regular face at Mount Maunganui's premium surf location, no matter the size Trav is out there charging. His time spent working in Indonesia at the Mentawai Surf Camp has inspired him to replicate his love of helping others mission to the best surfing spots around. If you need a board repaired, see Trav, he owns Bay Surf Board Repairs and if you want to learn to surf or charge some decent waves has just started South Pacific Surf Co. and is frothing to showcase New Zealand. We are stoked to have him on board and look forward to growing our respective businesses through collaboration.

I am from Mount Maunganui and have been playing water polo since I was 9.
I love playing in front of my family and for various teams in different cities. My greatest achievement so far has been making the New Zealand age group squad earlier this year. I am waiting for the opportunity to be able to trial for our first overseas experience or test. In the long run I am hopeful to gain a scholarship to study abroad and to play for an American college or in Europe for a professional club. My biggest aspiration would be to one day represent New Zealand in the Olympic Games.
Anika is a 15 year old goofy footer from cold stormy Dunners. She surfs waves at her local everyday and competes regularly around the South Island and loves a good free surf whenever that is on offer too. One of her recent results she placed 2nd in the Under 16 Girls at South Islands, narrowly missing out on the win. We are stoked to have such a lovely young lady on our team!
Winner of the 2017 Grom Lab held in Gisborne and part of the 2017 Bay of Plenty Team that took out the National Scholastics Championships with 1st place. Mitch is an up and coming talent. At just 15 years old he has his dreams set firmly in place for a crack at professional surfing competing in the national circuit. No matter what swell is rolling in, Mitch is honing his skills to progress his dream.
At just 13 years old, Jakob is well and truly immersed in the MX world, fortunate enough to have kicked off his dreams at a very young age with a 50cc bike and a track at his rural property in Pyes Pa. Jakob has progressed very quickly with some stellar results. Riding his KTM 85cc, the height and speed this young man is getting on the track is enough the scare any hardened surfer, we are stoked to include this medium of action sports to our team and look forward to working with him to grow our brand and his!
