Around his hometown Evan earned the title The Godfather for his role as Australias first international ambassador and competitor.Evan put Australia on the map charging in Hawaii even earning the best wipeout award. Back home the Godfather took under his wing hot upencoming Maroubra grommets like Bob Bell, Ross Hawke and young Steve Mackenzie. Together they dominated local contests for many years in the 80′s.
