About you in a few words and how you got to surfing
I grew up on a 40ft trimaran, sailing the east coast of Aus. Water has always been a huge part of my life. Dad’s a mad surfer and the culture is ingrained – the smell of wax, salty skin and checking tides… but it never really dawned on me that I wanted to surf until recently.
Local break: Bondi
What I love about surfing: It’s not about anyone else. It’s just you, the waves and an endless horizon (if you’re out the back far enough in Bondi). The moment you’re on the wave, everything evaporates into the flow.
What I hate about surfing: I guess the competitive side of things isn’t really my favourite – it’s just a wave, there will be more, chill.
Favourite surfspot in Oz: Loving longboarding at the moment so The Pass in Byron or Broomshead – looking forward to surfing w the old man for the first time this Chrissy!
Favourite surfspot overseas: To be decided.
Favourite surfboard: My 9”1’ fiberglass husband, Sharkie.
Favourite surfer: Belinda Baggs.
Favourite surf movie: The first surf film I remember watching was the Endless Summer, still takes the cake.
What I do when I’m not surfing: You’ll probably find me packing for road trips, dancing in the kitchen while baking, drinking coffee really slowly and spreading the love to save Australia’s gorgeous environmental wilderness.
