Lachie Rombouts grew up a two-hour bus ride from the beach and never flinched about grabbing his board and making the journey at every opportunity.

Lachie struggled to balance the so-called good times on land with the actual good times in the water and eventually his mental health nosedived. Until, one day his home break lit up with the swell of a lifetime. “In the end, it was finding a connection with giant surfboards and even bigger waves that re-invigorated Lachie’s love for the sea and helped him identify what sort of man he wanted to be.”
