Pointy of the Month: Big Gazza

















Name or nickname: Gazza
Favorite surfing beach: Airport Lefts
Best surfing moment (describe): Paddling out through the cave at Ulawatu for the first time, a real sense of history and anticipation. Also standing on the beach at 12 foot pipe, only six guys out and hundreds watching these incredible waves unloading in front of you
Surfing hero (and why): The wounded Gull, the one and only MR. A big bloke who surfs with real style 2 ft to 20 ft, and he’s not getting any younger, an inspiration to us all.
Favored board type: Big boy twinny fish, makes you feel like a superstar even though those mega carves are in fact pathetic wiggles.
Surfing maneuver you’d love to do: Come out of a stand up tube!
Dream surf spot: Maldives
Other sport (play) and (watch): Watch- The mighty men in black, nuff said! Play- Paddling
Greatest personal sporting moment(s): I missed it…. My son dunking in his first basketball game, they raised the hoops the following week.
Ultimate pin up: Laird Hamilton’s millennium wave
Food: The one and only Kiwi roast
Drink (variety): Steinlager
Thing you miss most about home: Surf everyday, and daylight saving, surfing until 10:00 pm at night in the summer time.
Thing you like best about Taiwan: The people, and coffee shops on every corner and at every beach!
Music: Anything off Azza’s i-pod, the man has taste
Best advice you’ve ever had: Life is not a practice run- live it now.
Movie: Armageddon
Collections: Surf Skis
Who would play you in a movie? The Hoff, looks, the body, singing ability, what a package
Current car: Ex kindergarten bus, Ford econo van- it’s for sale, any takers?
Dream car: Toyota Tacoma 4x4 double cab truck- gotta have space for the dog.
Near death experience: Full somersault at 60 km/hr over a 12 foot bank, the motor cross bike was totaled.
Your idea of a great night out: Few beers, surf movie, and a Barbie, or camping at the beach
Philosophy on life: Carpe Diem, seize the day!
