Super grom from the mid coast, Ash has been surfing since he was in nappies, leading the charge of the “bowl rats” (young kids that regularly surf Seaford). Ash can be found lurking on the inside section of Seaford, putting his small frame through the roof of oncoming sections. Ash’s current blade of choice is a 4’9” JS which he uses to effectively dismantle his competitors in Seaford board rider, and Micro grom rounds.
