Sunward bound was born and bred right here on Bundjalung Country, in NSWs beautiful northern rivers. After being away from home for many years chasing the snow, surfing quickly became my newest passion and I fell deeply in love with the lifestyle, the people and everything that it offers. 

As a person who spends majority of their day in the ocean and playing outside  I thought it was about time to begin caring for my skin so I can grow old happily and keep spending all my years outside. As a happy soul and lover of all things colourful and bright in this life, I thought it was crazy after shopping around that the only surf hats that were on the market to choose from were plain black. With the convenient timing of lockdowns to let my creativity really go wild, Sunward Bound was born!

The sense of community, shared passion and empowerment on a personal and collective level is something I never dreamed would come from this, but is the main reason its now one of the most beautiful parts of my life! I hope to empower people to get out of their comfort zones and learn something new, to love themselves wherever they are at in their journey, and to connect with others out there in the wild. Whether it be a friendly smile at someone paddling out for their first time, or lil cheeky yewww as you see someone get the wave of the day.

So I hope you get as much enjoyment out of Sunward Bound and all that we stand for, like I do!
