Perth Standlick is a team rider with a huge future and looks likely to be a contender on the World Tour in the years to come. He is a great all round surfer who dominates in the big stuff and has the aerial repertoire to make his mark in small wave contests. Perth is on the World Qualifying Series (WQS) and missed out on qualifying for the World Championship Tour (WCT) this year by only seven spots. He got a fifth at Sunset, a ninth at Haleiwa and a second place in a six-star event Spain. Watch this space, big things expected from this young guy. One of my favourite surfers to work with in terms of refining and perfecting boards for high performance and big wave surfing. He’s also super fun to work with and keen to spend time in bay. Perth rides the Silent Savage and Vertrix models as his competition shortboards.
