Ed Lovell

Secretary

I began surfing at the age of 13 in Southern California.  Now at 66, I still enjoy a good session.   With an attitude of ‘surf for life’, my home break is the Lighthouse in Suva.  I was a founding member of the FSA in 1994 as we prepared for the South Pacific Games in Tahiti in 1995, and was fortunate enough to win a silver medal in the longboard.  I joined the Quiksilver Crossing as it passed through Fiji and again in French Polynesia.   I have three surfing daughters Carli, Budgie and Talei.
