Hardcase Australian pro surfer and slab-wave addict; cofounder of the Bra Boys, a menacing boardriding club from Maroubra Beach, in south Sydney. Abberton was born (1979) the son of a heroin-using mother and an absent father, and spent much of his youth living in government housing. He began riding waves as a child with his older brothers Sunny and Jai, and by his teenage years was turning heads at the shifty, powerful waves of Maroubra and nearby reefbreaks.
Bra Boys, a documentary chronicling the life of the Abberton family, narrated and coproduced by actor Russell Crowe, was released to mostly favorable reviews in 2007. Abberton returned to Teahupoo for the infamous Code Red swell of 2011, and was a standout.
