DION INTERVIEW

Can you tell us a bit more about your passion for Surfing?

My dad got me into surfing when i was really young. but i was always pretty scared of the ocean and waves so it took me quite a while to feel comfortable in the ocean. Im still terrified when its big. But i as soon as i started surfing i just got drawn to the feeling of going fast along a wave and still am.

You just won the lottery, what would you do first?

Buy a compound for myself and all my friends to live.

Next destination?

Home.

“ I just got drawn to the feeling of going fast along a wave. ”

What’s the most amazing thing you’ve experienced?

Surfing in iceland years ago. The landscape there was so surreal and to be surfing in a place like that was phenomenal.

What are you doing during a day without wave?

If I’m at home I’m usually working on my house, or exploring around the place. Going for a walk. Going for a swim. Watch a movie. Do some work. Go for a drive. relax.
