An elite surfing athlete, Ace has spent the last 16 years competing on the World Surf League (WSL) Championship Tour – achieving two event victories over Kelly Slater at Hossegor (France) and Teahupoo (Tahiti), and consistently maintaining a Top 20 ranking.

During his career, Ace has served as an ambassador for some of the world’s leading sports brands and represented his fellow competitors as the World Pro Surfers Athlete Representative between 2014-2018. Ace is also a Board Member at Surfing Australia and formerly sat on the WSL Board.
