MURMUR-MAGS TOP 10 NICEST GUYS ON THE QS

Travelling and competing in a male dominated sport has us ladies constantly surrounded by some pretty great men doing the same and we’d be lying if we said our eyes didn’t wander now and then…so we decided for a little bit of fun to compile a list of the top 10 “nicest” guys on the World Qualifying Series. (QS)

As you can imagine this task felt a little overwhelming so we called in a little help from our friends…

15 female international QS competitors provided us with who they thought were the top 10 nicest guys on the QS tour, we then tallied up those names in to one list and ranked them from 1-10

Each guy had to meet the following criteria

  • Surf and compete on the World Qualifying Series
  • Easy to travel with and just hang with in general
  • To be an all round nice guy and a gentleman because ladies, chivalry isn’t dead!!!
  • Ain’t no player!
  • Genuinely support women’s surfing

Of course these aren’t the only nice guys on the QS, there are so many amazing men to travel, surf and play a good game of cards with but ladies if you’re looking to meet someone who absolutely shreds and is an all round nice guy then take our advice and get to know these surfers…

NUMBER 10 IS USA SURFER KEVIN SHULTZ Pic. Instagram @kevin_schulz

Hawaii’s sweetheart, Noah Beschen just had to make this list. We met Noah around two years ago now and didn’t see him for 12 months and the next time we saw each other he wasn’t shy to come say hello and have a chat. A literal legend of a human, he has so much talent when it comes to surfing and an amazing outlook on life. Such a fun person to be around.

KYUSS KING ROCKS IN AT NUMBER 7 Pic. Instagram @kyussking

Throwing it way back to when all his wetsuits and boards were a matching fluro green. Kyuss’s passion for surfing means he will always be the first one out there even when it’s dark so you have someone to talk to in the most unlikely of hours.

ALL ROUND NICE GUY COOPER DAVIES COMES IN AT NUMBER 6. Pic. Instagram @cooper_davies_

Another recurring name on the girls top 10 list was Matt McGillivray.

From all the way across the ditch, Billy Stairmand is one of the best guys out. Billy has a heart of gold and acts as a father figure and coach to most kiwis on the QS. He is always down the beach supporting his fellow New Zealanders and is honestly just a great person to be around. Beside the fact that his surfing is beyond amazing, Billy always helps the girls out by sitting on the beach and filming their waves if you ask nicely enough. Billy you are a legend.

His old school style leaves you feeling breathless after watching him surf, he’s one for the books.
