"I created the surfboard with a design of Mandela’s face. I wrote above it a quote from him: ‘It always seems impossible until it’s done’. That spoke loud and clear to me. I’ve had a lot of ups and downs in my life and my career(…). He has done so much for our country. I’ve had a lot of great things happen related to Nelson Mandela. I won my first big contest ever, on his birthday, in Jeffrey’s Bay.
That was very special. What an inspirational guy and someone you can look up to.”
