KNOWN FOR:

“My highest scoring move is the push loop forward or double forward if the waves aren’t big enough for push forwards.”

Going hard. Swift is a powerhouse and excels in hardcore conditions. Who remembers his almost perfect pushloop forward from the Red Bull Storm Chase?

EXPECTATIONS:

Swift is finally fully fit and as you can see in the video below really is a podium contender. His previous Pozo results show what Swift is capable of, it’s time to let his sailing do the talking…
