A laid back styling, vb drinking, covershot-hogging renaissance man from newcastle. South african born and aussie raised craig anderson’s surfing is a mix of graceful gazelle meets quick-striking tiger snake. Always a pleasure to watch in the water, his approach can only be described as ‘casually intense’.
