Hailing from Salt Rock on the KZN North Coast, this underground goofyfooter has been ripping the North Coast to shreds of late, where he spends his time surfing with his friends and his dad, Greg (Who is a surfing legend himself). Seaton has a knack for finding all sorts of waves, slabs, reefs and bowls. Some a novelty while others have become a consistent choice for the lover of left handers. It’s easy to see that Seaton lives for fun, just watch him catch a few waves and you’ll be convinced.
