Bill Morris

Bulli, New South Wales, Australia

 

Bill says “I have been a keen surfer all my life, have been fortunate to see all board transitions and progressions since the mid 60s, I started surfing & competiting on long boards since joining a long board club in 1991, competing at local, State & National levels, and plenty of opportunities to learn a lot about myself with the highs and lows of competition. I have held most positions within clubs including president for many years.

I pride myself on being professional, as a surfer and a Safety Trainer for NSW Mines Rescue Service, I am aware of my obligations to my sponsors, enjoy coaching young surfers, and know how fortunate I am to be part of the surfing community, never a win at all costs approach, sportsmanship is something I try and promote always, and would rather try and promote more an attitude of “What can I do for someone else today”.

A wonderful world class surfer, master craftsman & mentor to me, the great Frank Latta, taught me many things, among them “Think like a winner” and” Preparation” is the key to achieving your goals.”
