Born and raised in the south of England in a little village called Cranleigh and coming from a family of 13 children. I moved to Japan more than 16 years ago. After living for many years in the mountains skiing and snowboarding i moved back to Tokyo more than 10 years ago. This is where i met my wonderful wife Madoka (Japanese) and we started our family (Our Boys Rusty 10 Ralph 7) Our love for the the ocean has always been strong & being the owner of surfinginjapan.com it was only natural we finally moved out to our dream home a quiet little place right on the beach. Since then i have been lucky enough to become a Team rider for Laird Stand Up Paddle Boards, airSUP, Slide Fins. The ocean really is my home now & the way i support my family turning our home into a B&B was a very natural thing to do as we always had friends staying with us or surfers popping in to say hi. We pride ourselves on our Location, good food & Great Times Traveling so much on surf trips and photo shoots you really get to meet so many amazing people see different cultures and eat so much great food. giving that same experience to our guests really is satisfying. Similar to what we feel about surfing the sport we feel about many things we do in life. "What we learn to do today, we will try to do better tomorrow and perfect in the future" Surfing not a sport but a lifestyle.
