This year is the first time surfing will be included in the Olympic games. We catch up with Billy Stairmand who is an eight-time national title holder and the first NZ man to compete in surfing at the Olympic games.
“I’ve been through a lot. You become tougher and stronger and more motivated and here I am – the first Olympian.”
This is part of our new series My Life in Three, where people show us three things that are important to them.
