Dave Winchester

Ive been riding a bodyboard for 15 years and its provided me with such a great life. Travelling travelling and more travelling is what it has allowed me to do. The experiences have been unforgettable and the friends I have made are for life.

I love riding the boogie, Its the best, but also enjoy riding a stick, my hobby is fishing, but I don't get to do it much, I used to drink coffee, then i quit and now i drink it again,I don't like it, I love it. no instant crap though.

I now find myself at the ripe old age of 36 with a beautiful wife Aimee and 4 young daughters. We now live a relaxed and healthy life up in the country town of Mullumbimby the north coast of NSW, well as relaxed as it can be with 4 kids.

Still the dream is to win a world title, I love the competition, although it can be frustrating. At the end of the day, I love what i do and will do as long as it lets me.

Growing up and raised in the isolated city of Perth you never know your worth until you hit the big bad world. I went to school in a rough area, then as soon as I finished moved to Margaret River to pursue my passion of bodyboarding.

We lived like kings down there with not a cent to our name which was the way we liked it, no money meant no responsibility. At the age of 22 though I had grown out of the town and made my way on Australian Tours, World Tours and on what some would call ground breaking trips to waves which needed jet skis to be ridden. This is where I found my calling card. From then until now I have been in hot pursuit of this brand of excitement and as long as those waves still break I can't see myself not being there. 

My real passion though is what lies within these trips. It's the type of adventure im into and find nothing but comfort in sinking my feet into some dark red dirt and having the smell of camp fire attached to me for weeks on end.

I was born in Perth and have lived in the same house here all my life which has been pretty sick. My brother and his friends who are 4 years older than me got me into bodyboarding when i was about 9 or 10 and i was competing when i was 11.

Ever since then i have been competing in State titles and Nationals every year and i'm now starting to try a few aussie tour events. Although competing is pretty fun and helpful in progressing in bodyboarding i find myself having more fun trying to get good waves with all my mates. We always have such good times even if we get shocking waves which always makes it worth the drive.

I've also been travelling a little bit overseas in the last 2 years which has been epic! i'd definately want to try and travel all around the world to get some diiferent waves! I pretty much plan to continue bodyboarding for as long as my body lets me and hopefully move away from home and live with my mates somewhere like Margaret River one day!

I live in a rapidly growing town on the outskirts of Mandurah. I picked up a bodyboarding when I was only small in statue and it has changed my life. Bodyboarding brings me more pure enjoyment then any other sport and I have gained some incredible friends along the way.

I have 2 close buddies and together we are called the 3 amigos. i have grown up surfing with these guys at a local wedge and will always remember those sessions as some of the best times of my life. Now we are older we get to travel the world together and live out our dreams.

I love everything there is to do with the ocean whether it be fishing, surfing, swimming in summer but I've always loved being on the high seas in waves of consequence. These trips evoke both the most extreme amounts of fear and pleasure at the same time and I'm glad it's something I can share with my best mates.

I'm pretty sure i'll be bodyboarding and enjoying the ocean until the day I die and feel I've been one of the lucky ones to chase waves with the people that inspire me the most, my friends...

I reside in a small town just outside of Newcastle. One of my good mates got me hooked on bodyboarding when I was about 14 and I have never looked back since. Bodyboarding brings me more pure enjoyment then any other sport and I have gained some incredible friends along the way.

One of my favourite things to do is to travel and bodyboarding has alowed me to see parts of the world that have opened my eyes and made me appreciate everything I have. There is no money in bodyboarding and everyone is driven by passion alone and that's what I admire, those last minute low budget trips just to score some empty perfect waves.

For me bodyboarding is everything. Every other aspect of my life seems to flow better when I have been in the ocean. I loe every part of bodyboarding. For example I enjoy being fit and bodyboarding gives me that incentive to want to be at my optimal fitness.

I have intensions to bodyboard as long as I can, my mum says the salt water has brainwashed me and made me crazy about the ocen, I think she is right!

live in Tasmania. I spent the first 10 years of my life in a country town called Cygnet where the closest surf beach is about a 2 hour drive away. We lived right by a river and were always swimming and fishing, we then moved to Carlton beach where my older brother Charles started getting into surfing and bodyboarding.

I would only go sometimes in summer as I found the water too cold the remainder of the time and preferred to go skateboarding. It wasn't until I was 13 that I really started getting into bodyboarding.

Now days it is my life, I love competing chasing slabs at home and travelling around Australia and overseas scoring good waves. When I am not surfing I like hanging out with mates, skating, partying and working to save for that next trip.
