SURFER caught up with the seventeen-year-old ripper from Culburra Beach, Australia to find out a few of his likes and dislikes. Apparently, the kid loves bagels…who knew?

Lance Armstrong Biography

MUM’S BEST EATS:
Spaghetti bolgenese

No. I’ve been pulled over though.

GOING GREEN:

The best thing about America is the bagels. I could make a killing in Oz with a bagel shop.

I just saw the movie 300. That was sick. Also just saw Transformers. That movie gets you pumped.
