“I don’t think the kids could really explain what it feels like but you can tell from their expressions, some of the laughs and the smiles on their faces, you know what they’re feeling.”

In this episode of Into the Sunshine, we discover Gold Coast surfer Jon Locke and his salt-soaked take on family bonding.

“There’s nothing quite like the exhilaration of riding a wave”, says Jon, who has been surfing since he was four years old.

Now he and wife Nicole – a champion Iron Woman – share their love of the water with their three children, who can often be spotted flying and dancing through the surf on the front of their dad’s board at Currumbin Beach.

With saltwater in their DNA, the Locke children (Indiana, 7, Meika, 5 and Jacob, 4) also carry on their parents’ tradition of surf lifesaving, the sport through which the couple first met.
