Throughout the 1960s and 70s, Wayne carved out a solid reputation for himself on Queensland’s Gold Coast, particularly at Kirra. His fluent style and power positioning at dredging sand-bottomed barrels like Kirra earned him respect from grommets and seasoned professionals alike. Wayne has won 10 Queensland and 17 Australian Surfing Titles, competing on both short and longboards in most age divisions, in a testament to his surfing prowess and dedication to competitive surfing. He also won the 1990 ISA Longboard World Championship at Chiba in Japan. Apart from his competitive success, Wayne is a gifted and respected surfboard shaper with an understanding of the design and performance of both longboards and modern shortboards.
