Koby Abberton was one of Sydney’s most notorious ‘Bra Boys’ but these days, he’s left Australia behind. 

The former surf gang member and professional surfer from Maroubra Beach in Sydney, now resides in Bali with his Ukrainian model wife Olya Nechiporenko and their six-year-old son, Makua. 

The 42-year-old says he was no longer happy with living Down Under and doesn’t like what the country has become.

‘Look at Australia now – everyone is just struggling 24/7 – you’re paying $12 for a juice and s**t,’ he told The Courier Mail on Sunday. 

‘I don’t agree with quite a lot that goes on, so I moved out of there.’ 

Koby, whose Instagram page is littered with posts that are critical of Australia’s lockdowns and vaccine mandates, and has shared anti-vax conspiracy theories, says he now wakes up and does ‘whatever he wants’.

‘Have a swim, do some yoga, go to the gym, check the waves and if the waves are big I’ll make a call and I’ll take some kids surfing and surf all day,’ he said.

‘Then at the end of the day I’ll drink a couple of beers, go home to my beautiful family and make love to my stunning wife.’ 

The surfer also reveals he was uncomfortable with his wealth, which included the ownership of six houses, as well as the fame that came from the 2007 documentary on the Bra Boys, and had ‘never been more stressed in his life’.

‘It’s all just fool’s gold, all that s**t… and I realised after all that and it’s not something that I want in any way, shape or form… I’m just not into that way of life,’ he said.  

The former athlete has been openly critical of how Australia is handling the pandemic, and has shared various bizarre conspiracies to his social media.  

Last year, Koby unleashed an anti-vax conspiracy rant to claim the government is using coronavirus to stop Australians from leaving the country as part of a mass-vaccination plan. 

Fun: 'Have a swim, do some yoga, go to the gym, check the waves and if the waves are big I'll make a call and I'll take some kids surfing and surf all day,' he said. 'Then at the end of the day I'll drink a couple of beers, go home to my beautiful family and make love to my stunning wife'

‘Let’s be honest this virus ain’t what we have been sold all day every day for months through the media. Now the government want us to have another vaccine? Why?’ he ranted in his post.

‘We are up to 38 vaccine shots for kids and it’s too much. Autism is now through the roof and schools for autism are opening all around Australia. They need to open a lot more!’ he added. 

Anti-vaxxers consistently spread the false and dangerous theory vaccines cause autism, which is based on a completely discredited 1998 medical report that saw the author struck from the medical register.

Despite his criticism of his homeland, Koby has returned to Australia for a pay packet and stars on the upcoming season of SAS Australia. 

He told The Courier Mail of his experience on the show: ‘I laughed the whole time and was also scared the whole time. 

‘I even broke some personal boundaries, being screamed at and trying not to react.’

SAS Australia premieres Monday at 7.30pm on Channel 7
