I learned to surf really young- my family always spent a lot of time down at the beach.
To stay focused but relax & have fun during downtime on tour I surf as much as I can. For me that’s the best way to keep focused. I love to go on adventures and experience every place I go to. We have the best opportunity to see the world so I try to make the most of it!
My training consists of surfing, yoga and training in the gym for strength and conditioning to stay fit. I spend a lot of time training at the Surfing Australia High Performance Centre. They have been supporting me over the last year and I’m really lucky to be able to train there with the best in Australia.
My favorite tour stop is Snapper Rocks! It’s one of the best places in the world. Although I’m really looking forward to Trestles this year. I’m so excited to travel to cool new places and surf amazing waves with only one other girl in the water. It’s going to be a dream.
When I’m not surfing, I love hand shaping fun surfboards. I love painting them and I don’t like riding white surfboards. I love seeing people play music live and collecting vinyl records, new and old.
My 5 travel essentials are:
- Film camera (they turn ordinary photos into something special)
- Noise canceling headphones
- Half size guitar
- Paint or paint pens
I’m inspired by people who do what ever they want to do in life, and who are having the best time in the world!
My words to live by are: HAVE FUN AND DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY!!
