SEAN DOHERTY is a native of Forster on the New South Wales mid-north coast, but these days calls the rifling walls of Dee Why home. He began his career with surf journalism in 1997 with Tracks magazine, became editor in 2000, and still is today - the longest-serving (and -suffering) editor of the iconic Australian surf magazine. His 2004 biography on surf legend Michael Peterson was the basis for an upcoming feature film. He has written for the Sydney Morning Herald, Surfer and Surfing magazines in the US, as well surfing magazines in other parts of the world. He's also, of course, a great bloke and a red-hot surfer.
