How do you feel being the youngest international paddler here?
Pretty excited! It’s good to get to race the Olympic sprint paddlers and the other really good paddlers like the Mocke brothers and Sean Rice. Just excited to be able to race with them and follow what they do.

Are you using this race as a preparation for the Worlds you are going to have next month?
Yeah, Marathon Worlds is in two weeks time in Rome so I tought I would came here a couple of weeks earlier and use this as a training, a sort of warm up and also look for next year for the 2012 World Surfski Championships.

You do both, marathon and surfski?
I’m a sprint paddler, and from a surfski lifesaving background back in Australia, so I do a lot of surfskiing, a lot in the ocean, a bit of marathon paddling because I won marathon juniors last year.

What did you thought of Portugal as a surfski venue?
It’s good! A little bit choppy today, and the direction of the wind and the swell were a bit confusing, but it definitely showed promising for tomorrow. So, if it the wind direction turn a little bit then it should be a really good downwind race.
