SURF / ENVIRONMENT
Hi! I’m Izzy; an ocean lover and environmental advocate, usually found barefoot on a beach or lying on a surfboard somewhere in Cornwall ...probably wishing I was in Hawaii. My love for the sea came naturally following a rogue decision to leave home in favour of living in a caravan by the beach. Paying 50p for a cold shower and learning how to cook with just a microwave seemed a small price to pay for waves on the doorstep. After finally persuading my family to pursue the Cornish lifestyle, I’ve upgraded from caravan to farmhouse and now teach surfing in between University studies. I study Human Geography in Cardiff and fingers crossed I won’t have too many questionable tan lines from my wetsuit at graduation this summer.
FASHION / SUSTAINABILITY
Hi, I’m Freya, a Cornish local who has grown up in and around the sea. Living on the coast my whole life, sustainability and loving the environment has always been a massive part of my lifestyle. I’ve surfed since I could walk and spend 90% of my summers barefoot in a bikini and in the water. Having always lived in a tiny village I’m lucky to have had the opportunities to get out and travel and surf in all the corners of the world. This something I’m so grateful for and has only increased my love for the planet and shown me the importance of keeping it in shape for future generations to enjoy as much as I have so far. In between my University studies I teach surfing and yoga on the beach and pride myself in turning into a beach bum for 5 months of the year. When I’m not in my wetsuit or on my yoga mat I love to discover new cafes and brunch spots with my fellow mermaids and drink all the coffee that I can handle. So far my life has been full of sand, waves and tan lines; just the way I like it.
YOGA / WELLNESS
Hi, I'm Heather a yoga teacher of four years and a practitioner for nearly 10. I began yoga to build strength and flexibility for surfing and snowboarding. However, as time passed my original intentions began to shift. I no longer was returning over and over again for the physical aspects, I was returning because the yogic teachings began to have a profound impact on my life. I yearned for more and delved deep into the intricate studies of yoga. Teaching and sharing yoga is one of the most natural things for me, it lights me up and fills me with joy. But it's not all that I do and love. I live on the East coast of Nova Scotia, Canada and surf as much as I can. I use to live in the mountains of British Columbia and snowboarded as much I could. Things that mean everything to me include: sitting in circles with women of all ages and backgrounds, spending time in nature, continuing to read and learn from people wiser than myself and always having a good supply and variety of tea.
