5 min­utes with... protest am­bas­sador

Surf Girl - - – Snap Shot – - Lu­cie Don­lan

LU­CIE, WHAT DOES SURF­ING MEAN TO YOU? Fun, re­lax­ation, en­joy­ment and – most of all – it’s a very so­cial thing for me. I can al­ways guar­an­tee I’ll find some­one I know al­ready in the surf and, even if I don’t know them, I quite of­ten end up chatting with the other surfers – in fact I’m prob­a­bly guilty of do­ing more chatting than catch­ing waves!

THE BEST BIT OF AD­VICE YOU’VE EVER BEEN GIVEN?

In life the best ad­vice I could give is: if it stresses you out – ditch it. Stay hum­ble, be kind and, most of all, trust your jour­ney.

WHEN YOU’RE NOT SURF­ING YOU ARE... Prob­a­bly spend­ing some time with my lit­tle dog, Beswick.

SO HOW’S LIFE ON THE PROTEST TEAM?

I’ve been with Protest for three years now and I love be­ing part of the team. They have some amaz­ing rid­ers who ab­so­lutely rip and are all so friendly and full of fun. There’s no com­pe­ti­tion be­tween us and I love that; they know that my surf­ing isn’t up to their stan­dards but they re­spect me for what I do as an Am­bas­sador for Protest Women by pro­mot­ing surf­ing through a healthy and ac­tive life­style. Ev­ery­one on the team of­fers some­thing unique and dif­fer­ent in what they do, which Protest recog­nise and I think that’s what makes them stand out over other life­style brands.

WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR?

I’ve got some re­ally ex­cit­ing things lined up for the rest of the year – surf judg­ing with Surf­ing Eng­land, mod­el­ling, film­ing and a fam­ily surf­ing hol­i­day in Por­tu­gal. I was also a con­tes­tant on an ITV show that’s be­ing aired in the au­tumn, so I’m look­ing for­ward to see­ing that. Then I’ll hope­fully be off to Bali for the first time in the win­ter.
