Place of Birth: Lincolnshire
Home Break: Technically it would be Skegness! But its either the South of Tenerife (where I learnt to surf) or for now its Woolacombe, North Devon.
Goofy/Regular: Goofy all day
Favourite board: THE PUGSLEY! I got to design it with Simon last year and it’s a magic board! It goes well in my favourite conditions which is anything between 1ft-6ft
Favourite Wave: So tough! Spanish Left in Tenerife, Lakey Pipe and in the UK it would probably be Thurso or Lynmouth….. I love reef breaks!
I lived in Tenerife and mainland spain for nearly 10 years and have only been living in the UK the last 3 years. I compete on the UK Pro Surf Tour and the WQS. When its flat I like skating bowls and mini ramps (just not street!). I also film a Youtube Surf Series called Kelly Says Surf, which is a kind of comedy series where we surf no matter what! The Pugsley surfboard is named after a teddy bear that was won for me at Santa Monica pier, California, a couple of years back (home of The Lords of Dogtown). He now travels with me everywhere around the world!
I’ve had a severe back injury this year so just being in the water and surfing is pretty rad! I have a Maldives boat trip in a few weeks time where we are filming our next episode of Kelly Says Surf! Then winter trips away are just being planned out now, we’re thinking Barbados!
