Introducing Ziggy Alberts
Meet free surfer, songwriter and one face behind the SurfStitch Summer campaign, Mr. Ziggy Alberts. Hailing from the humble beginnings and pristine coastlines of the Sunshine Coast, Ziggy has both surfed and written poetry since a young age and nowadays, he’s mastering the tools of both.
Picking up a left handed guitar for the first time in just 2011, Alberts taught himself from scratch and after dropping his debut album ‘Feels Like Home’ in 2012, has secured his name in Byron Bay’s roam free music scene. Think coastal folk that tells a story through an acoustic background, and think Ziggy Alberts.
Known to also ride any craft from a 5 foot fish to a 9 foot log, Ziggy’s love and easy flow in the ocean is evident through his relaxed and controlled style of surfing. Now living in Australia’s favourite getaway town of Byron Bay for good, his musical and surfing talents come together in sync perfectly, and after just returning from a tour of England and Europe, the world is truly becoming his oyster.
Get your sneak peak of Ziggy’s fresh to market hit ‘Runaway’, used throughout our latest campaign thanks to the relaxed tempo’s and perfect rhythms which seem to blend the feel and positive vibes of Summer perfectly.
“The inspiration I got behind the track Runaway that we recorded here in Byron was the ever going challenge of balance in your life, as a musician and as a surfer and with your personal relationships…”
