Sean Doherty is a native of Forster on the New South Wales mid-north coast, but after years of calling the rifling walls of Dee Why home he has moved to another fabulous surf break and hangs out near Torquay.
He began his career in surf journalism in 1997 with Tracks magazine, and became editor in 2000 the longest-serving (and suffering) editor of the iconic Australian surf magazine. His 2004 bestselling biography on surf legend Michael Peterson is the basis for an upcoming feature film and also inspired Malcolm Knox s latest novel This Life. His bestselling book The Official Bra Boys Story: My Brother s Keeper is also under option. He compiled and wrote the bestselling The Moment. He writes for The Sydney Morning Herald, Surfer and Surfing, as well as surfing magazines in other parts of the world and is considered by many to be the best surfing journalist in the world. He is also, of course, a great bloke and a red-hot surfer.
