Blake began surfing at the age of seven in the surf town of Cronulla, Australia-a short twenty-minute drive south of Sydney. The sport runs in Blake’s family-his cousin Joel Bonning, who’s two years younger, is an Australian champ, and a bloke Blake regularly surfs with. Blake also travels and surfs with his Rusty teammate Jock Barnes doing the Australian junior tour, shooting photos, and getting ready for life on the WQS. Other than that, his main aspirations right now include getting tattoos from his brother and qualifying for the WCT within his first couple years on the tour.-A.C.
