My time, even at the holidays, is always planned around the weather and the waves. This has become my tradition. From eating loads and spending time riding the mountains, to seeking out the biggest, cleanest wave I can find, the holidays are less about tradition, and more about doing what I love. The past few winters have been spent in the French Alps with my girlfriend Justine, and from time to time a Boxing Day football match is a big hit over the holidays. My ideal holiday gift - the biggest, cleanest wave I can find!
