I have a life long passion, which started at about the age 2 when my father first  took me out bodysurfing in the waves at Umhlanga Rocks on the North Coast of Durban, Natal, South Africa , from that  day I was hooked on salt and waves and nothing much has changed since then, except I have allegedly grown up a bit.
So yes mainly about my passion for surfing , life and adventure
