Our Harbour Master

Bradley King, wave rider, Seventhwave team member, creative designer, with a love for the sea, and all things salty, has just suited himself up in a Max 3/3 Zip Bib, G&S winter steamer. With an all royal blue tint, white bib, additional headband, and his very own hand designed prints, this suit is fit for a King! You will find him surfing around the peninsula, mostly Hickory and Magnet bays, but sometimes he will set off with the wind for a map the sky for a clock in search of new destinations. Bradley is soon jetting off to Finland, Europe, and Fiji for some waves, we wish him all the best on his travels abroad, and look forward to his return back to us.
