Monty Tait

Monty Tait

Monty started surfing at the age of 9 and has become a surfing sensation and one of the hottest young surfers in Australia. His strongest and best influences all come for his family.

Looking into the future, Monty still has many years as a junior surfer but is already aiming well beyond that. He says, I would love to qualify for the asp world tour. I know to get onto the tour is a long road and consists of hard work and patience, but it's worth it.
