Growing up in the depths of West Cornwall the search for good barrels soon led Patch to places like Mexico, Oz and Indonesia. Funding his trips with construction work, his recent focus has been on Ireland, Scotland and breaks closer to home. With a preference for solitude and quality waves, he's out there whenever the North Atlantic begins to stir.
