For those of us out there that have had the privilege to surf Shark Island you will know how intense this wave can be, how shallow it is, the respect required and the commitment involved, even on the small days! Flicking through some of the pics of our next rider you can quickly see he has got the above nailed and has done so at a very young age, respect has to be given where respect is due so hats off.....

The Saffa boys run with this daily and I guess for some it adds an extra edge, maybe in the same way you have to be on your game when you paddle out at a super shallow reef! Our next rider is no exception to this.... with some of the best waves on the planet
