Australian Sprint Kayaker & Surf Ski paddler







Surf Ski


I have been with Reece and the BOS team since owning my first new ski back in 2017. In under 17s I trialed multiple different skis, and nothing compared to the quality, feel and aesthetic of a BOS. My favorite surf memories have been on my BOS both in competition and training and this discipline quickly became my strongest.  The way it cuts through waves on your way out and catches runs in, is like no other. 

Reece has always looked after me and gone above and beyond to put together the perfect ski whether that is making new colors or personalizing certain aspects of the ski making me as comfortable as possible when I’m out paddling. 4 skis in and they keep getting better. BEST SKIS OUT!!

I found Surf lifesaving when I was 11 and have been obsessed ever since. I grew up playing all sports, but surf was the one that stuck. It was a great way to meet new people, keep fit and spend time at the beach. I always had the dream of becoming a professional Iron-Woman looking up to my idol Courtney Hancock. Unfortunately, I sink instead of swim plus, craft is way more fun! Since hopping on a ski my favorite leg went from board paddling to ski paddling. 

Ski paddling is what got me into kayaking and I for that I am forever grateful for the opportunities that I have experienced since. At the beginning of 2022 I made the decision to commit all my time into kayaking and relocated to the Gold Coast. I have since been able to represent Australia and medal at the World Championships (2022) in Halifax, Canada. I am looking forward to pushing myself to be better every day. I love being surrounded by a professional environment and hope to continue to represent Australia in kayaking in the coming years. 

Outside of sport I am looking forward to completing my Honors of Occupational Therapy. It is such a rewarding job where you get to have a positive impact on peoples lives. I also love spending time trying new things and testing myself. I am always looking for a new challenge. I am very close with my family and friends who are my biggest support network. They are the ones I always go to for advice.
