Surf Ski


The passion and commitment to the finer details Reece shows towards his surf skis was what originally drew me to his skis. Now after a number of years paddling and working with Reece this passion and commitment hasn’t wavered and it’s an absolute pleasure paddling the fastest and best made skis on the market.

MY Experience

Personal profile
  • A lifetime in the ocean surfing and competing I now pass this onto my family and those I coach.

  • Purple Belt BJJ

  • Multiple state and Australian medalist in surf sports

  • Multiple Race wins and podium finishes in professional ironman series spanning over a period of 18 years

  • 2007 Coolongatta Gold winner

After starting surf lifesaving as an eight-year-old at Thirroul Surf Club I was instantly hooked on racing in the ocean. I couldn’t get enough of training and racing and continued on my journey gaining a contract age 17 to Kellogg’s Nutri Grain and getting a start in my very first professional series.


I raced professionally until I was 34 with numerous race wins and some definitely up and down times along the way. 
In 2000 I moved to QLD to race for Mooloolaba SLSC and this is where I met my beautiful wife Renae and mother to my beautiful children Taya & Cruz.


I now work as a Lifeguard Supervisor here on the Sunshine Coast and continue with my passion of Life Saving with the role of Head Coach at Mooloolaba SLSC.
