Yo its Foy here, my hobbies are Jet Skiing, Jet Skiing, Jet Skiing. But when theres no surf i enjoy climbing, Coasteering and anything i can get a buzz from.
After years in Motorsport and around cars I've always had love for anything with an engine, whether its bikes, boats, cars, 4x4s or jet skis, if it goes fast or i can have fun with it, I'm in!!
Relaxing wise, i like to have a bath and listen to music, no TV, just kick back with some tunes and enjoy the sound.
Im full throttle and flat out most of the time, and my energy and passion is what drives me, if i aim for something, its aim high, never give up and do it properly.
I came 1st at Port Talbot round of Surf Wars Uk championships.
Portugal leg of the Europeans and IWFA
Well what can we say, a total legend, Dan went to Portugal and smashed it, he won the Europeans and is currently 1st in the World. Next stop Biscarrosse France.
Wow, what a whirlwind of a trip, over 2500 miles with some of the best friends I've ever had the pleasure of meeting, the most incredible waves and scenery like something from a movie. It's been incredible. First stop nazare and walking away with the win was nothing short of mind blowing, had to pull out everything in my bag to bag the top spot against 2 world championship winning rivals! An incredible experience and 1 I will never forget!!
2nd stop Biscarosse, France, the waves were firing, the sun was shining and the croissants were crispy!! Another mind blowing adventure, everyone upped there game and I had to work hard again securing 5th over in world rounds, but taking away the win in the European championship!!!
3rd stop Newquay, my home away from home, waves waves that were off the chart!! After a nasty knee tweek in practise I filled myself up with pain killers and hobbled into the tray, just about did enough against some savage competition!! UK riders are really firing this year!!!
Mexico June 2018
Our boy Dan continued his world championship tour in Mexico and finished a brilliant 4th cementing his place as one of the best on the planet.

What a whirlwind, after the adventure of a lifetime travelling around Europe competing and jetting off to Mexico to hold my own with the best jetskieers and the best friends in the sport I'm still in awe, the love and warmth this sport provides and beautiful, the people involved are the best! The comaradary, the love, the passion, it's all perfect! Whether we get the results we want or not, just being on the beach with my best friends is all I could ask for!
Now I'm sat on a beautiful beach in the USA gazing out to surf, focusing on each step at a time, dialling myself into the sport and the people who have helped me get here, I truly love you all! Surf Slam.... let's be avin ya!!

Blowsion Surf Slam 2018!
What an experience, after a battle with Takaaki Murao in the 1/8s I came away in 9th place, but with my points from previous rounds I'm still sat in a comfortable 3RD in the championship heading into the final in Japan!
Huge thanks to all my sponsors for helping me live my dream of doing the world tour.
