Nickname: Dr Duck
Most used gear combo: 1998 Caveman Bump & Jump, 2000 Gaastra Grind 5.8, Fins International 26 cm free-ride.
Favourite gear combo: Exocet Kona, Grind 5.8 for playful fun when conditions are so light you know you should really be moving the lawn or something.
Gear you wish you had: I think windsurfing gear is a bit like computer software - sometimes the old version you know really well is better than the new version you have to learn all over again. I also like versatile gear - slalom boards you can jump and wave boards that go fast. Any suggestions welcome as my current gear is getting on a bit.
Favourite spot: Kingston Park - speed/slalom in summer & waves in winter.
Spot you would most like to sail: Anywhere the sun is shining, the sky is blue and the water is clear.
09 aspirations(sailing & life): Sustainable, happy existence for myself and family. Hit 30 knot peak on the Kona.
Hit 40 knot peak on a short board.
25 knot alpha.
Work on those nm and 1 hour speeds.
Favourite movie: The Flight of the Phoenix (original)
Favourite food: Custard. If it's from Holland even better. They make the best custard ever. Really.
Favourite colour: Blue
Favourite saying: Having fun is half the fun.
Wheels: My windsurfing trolley or 1991 Holden Jackaroo running on biodiesel (I'm a hippy!)
