Anatomy OF A SURF GIRL
WHERE DO WE BEGIN WITH STEPHANIE GILMORE? THERE’S SO MUCH WE LOVE ABOUT THIS COOL CHICK WHO IS SIX TIMES WORLD CHAMP. NOT ONLY IS HER STYLE BOTH IN AND OUT OF THE WATER EFFORTLESSLY COOL, SHE’S ALSO PRETTY HANDY ON THE GUITAR.
1. Roxy Ambassador
Since 2013 Stephanie has been one of the main faces of action sport and lifestyle brand, Roxy. Shredding the waves and rocking their product, she joins their insanely talented team of surfers, snowboarders, skaters and other influential women.
2. World titles
With six world titles to her name and too many heat wins to count, Stephanie Gilmore has a talent that cannot be disrupted. Stepping on the scene with her first wild card at just 17 years old, Steph has gone from strength to strength. Always with a calm approach to competitive surfing, she makes winning heats looks pretty easy (although we know it’s clearly not!). 3. Style
Stephanie oozes style out on the water. Her ability to carve effortlessly through sections that we would struggle to surf through, with radical cutbacks, critical turns and the ability to get barrelled on almost every wave.
4. Healthy living
Stephanie’s natural athleticism is down to living a healthy, active lifestyle. Spending hours in the water rather than the gym, Stephanie has developed a strong, healthy body and mind, keeping her on top form for competitions and surf trips.
5. Good vibes
Always with a smile on her face and positive words to share, we could all take a leaf out of the Gilmore book of good vibes. Her focus through turns like this one, allows her to perform the most radical committed manoeuvres, even when under pressure.
6. Cool as a cucumber
She’s a great role model for women and girls both in and out of the surfing world. With a positive outlook and incredible talent, (she’s great on the guitar too!) we only wish we could hang out with her all the time and hope that some of her awesome-ness would rub off!
