Name: Rob Small
Country: Cornwall, UK. Lanzarote, Canary Islands
Best results: I haven't competed for a longtime, we'll see this year!
Favourite discipline: Surfing & SUP
Favourite spot: La Derecha, La Santa, Lanzarote. I can ride everything here. Fish, guns, performance shortboards, SUPs and even tow boards. But really I'm happy if I can get in the water anywhere.
Favourite Fanatic board: Currently my Bamboo Evo 6'8" and ProWave 8'10".
Favourite manoeuvre: Anything that feels clean and crisp and on an edge.
How I started SUP/Surfing: When I was very young we lived next to a fantastic beach in Cornwall and surfing seemed a very natural thing to do. My parents bought me my first board when I was about 8 years old. And I haven't stopped since !
I started SUP surfing a few years ago and it's been the best thing ever. Stand Up paddle is so much fun, keeps you in shape and constantly a challenge, just a great way to enjoy the water.
Best SUP/Surfing day in my life: I have had so many incredible days in the waves it's hard to pinpoint the best ! It's got to be today hasn't it ?!!!
Other sponsors besides Fanatic: ION, Bilbo Surf Shop
My Goals: Overall I want to be more a more complete water person. Keep developing my surfing, SUP surfing and tow-in surfing in conjunction so that I can ride whatever conditions the ocean throws at me.
My Slogan: Let's go!
