  • Setting and achieving goals
  • Importance of preparation
  • Team work
  • Overcoming adversity
  • Dealing with failure
  • Determination – not giving up
  • Thinking creatively

Being humble with no ego, Andrew’s delivery is refreshingly candid and thoughtful. He is not brash and never boasts about his achievements. He uses visual aids to invite the audience into his world and experience just a little of what it’s like to be in an ocean with 60 foot waves detonating around (and sometimes on) you.

Andrew is very good at following his presentation with a Questions and Answers session and loves receiving interesting questions from the audience. People are interested to hear about what drives him to do what are perceived to be extreme and dangerous things. They also want to know what goes into preparing mentally and physically for surfing big waves as well as how he balances this with family life.
