We are extremely proud to have Ty Richardson as our Junior Ambassador. At just 13 years of age, Ty’s secret to success is his exposure to surfing at a young age. Ty is the son of Mark Richardson (5x
Australian Champion) and owner/operator of Surfing Services Australia. He is also the nephew of 2012 WSL World Champion Joel Parkinson and a cousin to Mitch Parkinson. Ty has been a surfer since he was 3 years old. He really got the surfing bug after travelling to some of his favourite breaks on boat and land trips to the Maldives (especially Lohis at Hudhuranfushi Resort), Tavaruara, the Mentawais and Bali.
Ty has won the junior Queensland Title for the last 2 years in a row. He has also taken 1st places in all the renowned grom comps including the Billabong Occy Grom (where he scored a perfect 10), Skullcandy Oz Grom Cup, Parko Grom Stomp, Bede Comp at Stradbroke, a Rip Curl Grom Search Comp plus a host of local event wins. Ty continues to train to improve his surfing, competes in as many grom comps as he can and tries to surf as many local breaks with his family and friends in between trips with World Surfaris.
Ty’s goal is to make a living from his passion for surfing and ultimately progressing to the world tour one day. Good stuff Ty – we will do our bit to support your dreams.
