I have always had a connection to the ocean, starting surfing from a young age, kitesurfing in my teens and in the last few years Stand Up Paddle surfing and racing.
After competing in my first Stand Up Paddle event in 2014, I am now an active member of the local Sydney, Australian and International Stand Up Paddle community. In my relatively short time in the sport I have built a reputation for being strong in both aspects of the sport, winning various stand up paddle races around the world, placing 2nd at the Stand Up World Tours Sunset Beach Pro and placing 4th at the prestigious Molokai 2 Oahu. I am currently the Australian Champion for the Distance and Technical Racing.
Having gained the respect of my peers I have had the opportunity to give back, being a committee member of Sydney Paddle Surf Club, running ocean and flat water paddling training sessions with my coaching company, James Casey Coaching, as well as becoming the Australian regional representative for the APP World Tour.
