About:

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.

About:
All my life I have been hearing impaired (my left ear does not hear and still the right has a hearing aid). I have no water proof hearing aid either, which often interests people due to the significance between hearing and balance. This, however, does not affect my balance when surfing.

Hobbies:
My favourite thing to do apart from surfing is my artwork which includes mediums such as painting, paint pens, water colouring, crafting, designing ideas, tie-dye and painting on surfboards.

Places to Surf:
I love driving down south in my 1999 White Hiace Van and surfing some of those funny places like Flat rock (Lennox Head), Tallows, Cabrita Beach, Arrawarra, Coffs Harbour and Cresent Head. However, I also love surfing my home breaks including Moffats, Currimundi, Buddina and Noosa.
