NOVATOS: Tomas Hermes Never Dreamed Of Making The CT
The existential surfer!
At 30 years of age, Tomas Hermes is finally a CT rookie after slugging it in the QS for years. What makes him interesting is that, unlike all of his competitors, Tomas never dreamed of making the CT. It wasn't even his goal in life, at least on a personal level. Professionally speaking, sure, the CT would provide more financial security and a metaphorical notch in his belt, but he never thought qualifying would change him as a person.
Which is to say he's pretty enlightened fella.
Watch the clip above to learn more about Tomas, who could use some muscle relaxers for his arms but surfs very soon in Snapper Round 3!
