My name is Riley Thomson and surfing, to me, is that special something that I wake up for early every single morning, that in turn encourages me to extend myself in all aspects of my life. Growing up I didn’t start surfing until the age of 10 and became a ‘die-hard longboarder’ at the age of 15. I now live on the shores of the Sunshine Coast and have various world class breaks at my door step. I compete regularly in a multitude of Longboard, Shortboard, Old Mal and Stand up competitions across the shores of Australia. My ultimate goal is to become a World Champion.
