    Coolest place you've ever been
    Byron Bay. The first time I arrived at Byron and walked out to ‘the pass’ and stood at the lookout point it was one of the moments where I got blown away. You can see for miles where the tropical forest meets the bright blue Pacific Ocean. It is streaming with sea life; dolphins jumping out the water. The small town is full of surf culture, live music and art in the streets. There is a vibe in this town that is completely unique and captivating.
    Kind of car
    Any thing that has four wheels and gets me to the waves without breaking down is a king of car in my eyes.
    Living person you most admire
    Rebecca Woods, a professional surfer on the CT for 9 years. She is a fierce competitor, a charger, ripper a pleasure to surf and travel with. One of the most down to earth professional female surfers around and an inspiration to everyone lucky enough to meet her. A true athlete that promotes surfing as a sport.
    When not surfing, I'm
    Having fun, laughing, spending time with family, training, swimming, skating running, traveling, seeing new things, experiencing new challenges.
    Word or phrase you overuse
    ‘bad boy’ such a good phrase, you can use if for almost anything, good wave, new surf board, nice car whatever you want. I didn’t realise how much I said it until I hang out with the Australia girls and they ridicule me for it.
    Could live anywhere, where?
    Australia, that place is so big, beautiful and exciting I could spend my life time going around the whole country.
    Secret obsession
    chocolate muffins fresh from a bakery, the smell is enough, it’s a secrete obsession and my guilty pleasure.
    Astrological sign
    Virgo
    Best advice I've received
    The best surfing advice I ever received was from my first Surf coach ‘you can only do what the wave will let you’
    Favorite board at the moment
    Rob Vaughn is a magical shaper he listens and shapes a board he thinks will suit you best. My favourite model is a squash square 5’9 short board and I use it the most.
    First thing you pack for a trip
    My camera, you make memories on the road and see things you don’t see in your normal life. When I get home I blog about it, http://jodennison.blogspot.fr/
