Surf Ninja – Robbie Schofield

Like another of our featured underground shredders, Etienne Potgieter, this wave assassin has also earned his wings and will help command our air force. When he is not flying to his next destination though, you’ll find him hunting for waves to demolish with his powerful and radical style. Meet this week’s Surf Ninja, Robbie Schofield…

BEST THING ABOUT SURFING?
It makes me happy when I do it. The lifestyle and chasing waves is a drug.

WORST THING ABOUT SURFING?
People that don’t know the rules about surfing, and that goes for all ages. When you try give advice they always seem to take it as an insult.

THREE ARTISTS THAT HELP YOU SHRED?
Foo Fighters – My Hero (all surfers know why)
Jeremy Loops – Power
PNAU – Embrace

BEST SURFER IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW?
Slater (he does it all). I feel sorry for the guys that win world titles after he is gone. They will always wonder.

DAWNIE OR ARVO SESH?
I get to do both because I’m single (laughs).

WHICH SPOT DO YOU HAVE TO SURF BEFORE YOU DIE?
I would like to surf most spots in the world to say I have, but Tahiti is up there.

WHEN YOU ARE NOT SURFING, YOU CAN BE FOUND WHERE?
Up the west coast off Dassen Island, fishing for yellowtail off the jet ski.

GREATEST FEAR?
Being bitten by a shark freaks me out.

BEST SURFING MEMORY?
Getting my first custom surfboard when you’re a lightie is a big thing.

    One of the best all round surfers with a polished style. He can even drive the ski ok these days. Not a bad bloke to take along for a solid swell

    Does the best power wraps! Similar to the way AI used to do them. Also loves to stuff himself into barrels!

    A class act in and out of the water. Always on the rail, always a smile of the dial, a pleasure to surf with.
