Unreal weekend, always have a blast at the @surfing_nsw state titles. Really happy to take out the Open SUP surfing, we had some unreal waves for the event, as well prior to kickoff. First time back at a BOP race came 5th it was good to get back in the game. @fanaticsup

Everyday I am trying to be in or surrounded by the ocean it is my passion. Wether its SUP, Windsurfing, Surfing, bodysurfing... its all good. IG: @kaibates
My name is Kai Bates and I am 19 years old.
Let me take you back. From the early age of 2 my playground consisted of Winter seasons at the snow (Mt Hotham) and Summers at the beach (Ulladulla). Unknowingly living and learning the freedom of individual sports in natural environments. Having this life style and these amazing environments available to me allowed me to either ski or surf for most of my everyday life and it has become a true passion.
Only 3 years ago I was given the opportunity to experience surfing in a complete different style – Stand Up Paddle Surfing! My love for this sport is now as intense as my love of skiing, surfing and windsurfing. With the support of my Family and friends I have been able to pursue this very new sport at the beginning stages of what I see as a futuristic style of surfing. The sport has already grown beyond belief in many overseas countries. Australia is at the beginning of its growth now. Competition in Australia is increasing and I have been fortunate enough to reach an international level being supported by some very positive sponsors for boards, paddles, fins and some clothing.
