Thanks to my adventurous parents, I started globe trotting when I was just a baby and I have never stopped! As well as having a gypsy spirit, I have a deep love of being in, on or under the water. Combining my loves led me to work in the travel, hospitality and water sports industry, such as the prestigious Aman Resorts and Mares Scuba.
My inner Surf Goddess awoke the first time I headed out into the waves of Bali’s Legian Beach, with board in hand, 20 years ago in the mid-90’s.
With professional surf schools yet to be invented, surfing was passed individually from surfer to surfer (usually those individuals being males only), and so the sport was essentially a boys club and not easily accessible or encouraged for women. Even women’s professional surfing was still emerging at the time, and so I was very lucky to be taught by one of its early pioneers.
My Surf Goddess mentor passed on to my friends and I, the soul of surfing and joy of hanging out with a positive ‘goddess gang’ where we supported each other in expressing our own uniqueness and encouraging each other to achieve our individual dreams.
