But OBfive as a brand is influenced by both the classics and emerging trends in surf & skate.
Describe yourself in three words?
Motivated, driven and enthusiastic.
What are your travel essentials?
I always travel with a good backpack, one that is functional yet compact, my iPhone for music, and for the longer trips, a powerbook or iPad to work on & watch movies.
What’s on your playlist?
Lately I've been listening to a bit of older stuff. Aussie crawl, lots of old surf movie sound tracks from the late 90's, and even a bit of Sade.
What is your favourite thing to do?
If I can have 3 surfs in one day and still manage to spend time with the family then finish the day with a few cold beverages, that would be a perfect day.
What’s next for you?
We are just about to launch our Summer Injection range which will be available in stores on Boxing Day and on our website from Christmas Eve (obfiveskateboards.com.au). We are also talking with distributors in the US & Europe at the moment, so taking the OBfive brand to a global market will be part of our business plan for 2013.
