Gone Ambassadors Program


The Gone Ambassadors have been chosen because they represent different parts of the bodyboarding community. Some are competitor, some are sole/solo surfers and some are total beginners. Our Ambassadors are of a wide range of ages but all carry equal amounts of froth.


Our Ambassadors have been chosen because we believe they represent the best parts of our sport, the love, the froth and the values that Gone Bodyboarding wants from our ambassadors and those who we want to represent our sport.

Bio: I never surf alone, the Ocean is my Home, my Peace and my Passion, She is always with me. I’m that guy that everyone knows will be out there. Years of competing and running clubs in Sydney, my latest mission is to get super fit and chase a DK world title next year. A surf Nomad I have lived my life guided by waves setting life up where they are, mastering the local perfection and then moving on to the next challenge. I am a Local at many places and slave to none. You’ll find me sharing the stoke, calling people in regardless of their craft and chasing perfection between Queensland, Victoria and Indonesia with every spare cent. Respect the Ocean like you would your Mother and you’ll go ok.
