Charging big waves gets Richard Kidd frothing. The youngster from Ballito is all about power surfing. Although he has a formidable air game, deep inside heaving barrels is indeed his happy place. He is an incredibly grounded young man who is extremely focused on what he wants to achieve in his surfing and in life. Having only competed in a handful of events he does however have his eyes firmly set on being part of the SA Olympic team in 2020 and realises it will only be achieved through hard work and dedication. So when he isn’t surfing, Richard is training hard to keep himself in peak physical condition in order to give himself the best possible chance in upcoming competitions.
