Sooooo...it's the end of the contest season and so much has happened over the last few months!
From adventures with Urban Beach/Osprey Action Sports on their SS17 shoots, contest travel, last minute commercial shoots and hosting my Surf & Stretch weeks out in sunny Fuerteventura its been an action packed few months which I have loved every second of.
One of my absolute dreams came true a little while ago when we welcomed one of my amazing sisters on board the Urban Beach/ Osprey team (Natasha McGuinness). We have so much planned and can't wait to share it all with you! Although 2016 is now nearly done we are already in full 2017 planning mode, which will include some very exciting surf and fitness events around the UK as well as in the Canary Islands.
Another incredible experience I had the honour of being a part of was to shoot the commercial for the new MINI Countryman, which is being released in 2017. It was such a surreal experience. I was contacted by the director and producer 5 days before we were set to shoot and we had an interview via Skype, as I was still in the Canary Islands training for the Boardmasters WQS contest. I was cast as the main talent and a few days later I flew to the UK for 4 days of crazy shooting in Devon and London. The team were incredible and the story line is something that is so close to my heart - it's about a girl who craves to escape the urban life and just be in the sea and nature.
I have also been hosting my Ohana Surf & Stretch weeks out in Fuerteventura, which have been so much fun and have been filled with adventure, great waves, and of course some fancy dress surfing! We have made friends for life and are looking forward to welcoming some of them back in the New Year. We do still have places available for our Surf & Stretch weeks in January, February and March 2017, which are in association with Urban Beach and Osprey. Head over to Surf & Stretch Week for full info and details.
At the moment I am sitting on my little magic rock of Fuerteventura, where I am working (surf coaching) and getting as much surfing/training in before I head home to the UK for Christmas and New Year...as well as some colder surfing adventures along the west coast which I actually can't wait for, as it means I get to wrap up in my favourite Urban Beach winter essentials!
We do also have a little surprise for you, which is coming up in 9 sleeps! All I can say for now is keep your eyes on the Urban Beach and Osprey Instagram accounts for more details! You don't want to miss this!
Stay tuned for more from out winter adventures and remember to #seekadventure
