I joined the Surf Docs in 2013 after reading about Phil in a Surfer Magazine. My first placement was G-Land and Life has never been the same since. I dragged my young family to Indo every year after that and did several tours at Maccas and ultimately moved from my beloved Nova Scotia, Canada to Lennox Head, NSW Australia, to warm my ageing bones.
