Urban Beach is proud to welcome aboard Tehillah McGuinness our newest brand ambassador! An all-round lover of life, Tee will be showcasing the pick of our 2013 collection as she embarks on her quest to promote a healthy, active lifestyle through the art of riding waves.

Growing up in South Africa Tee has surfing in her blood, now based in Fuerteventura she divides her time charging waves professionally, being a personal trainer to clients and celebrities alike, as well as modelling! Her exploits in both surfing and fitness gave her the idea to combine the two, in what has become her new venture Ohana Fitness & Surf.

Tehillah will be journeying to the UK in 2014 to promote her Girls Surf & Fitness weekend programme, which will be run through various surf schools, and will be an opportunity for women of all ages to take up an interest in the sport or improve on their abilities if they are already acquainted with surfing. Participants can also learn about the importance of keeping active through surfing as well as discovering other related pursuits to help them on their way to a healthier lifestyle. Outlining her plan for her 2014 fitness weekends in an article by the Huffington Post, Tehillah commented:

"I have had the pleasure of teaching so many girls how to surf and I have seen so many amazing achievements, not only in the sport, but in their confidence and personal lives. I love the fact that at the beginning of some of these weekends you have a group of girls, who have never met each other before, are a bit nervous and reserved and by the end of the two days are laughing with and at each other, catching waves together and all the girls are cheering each other on! I love the power of surfing and that I have the opportunity to be a part of that.”
