I was born by the sea in Pembrokeshire and I am lucky enough to live right by the beach. I caught my first wave when I was just a baby (on a body board), my dream is to become a pro surfer (I need to practice a lot more though!)
My mum has always picked up stuff from the beach like driftwood and shells, I would help her but noticed how much plastic rubbish was on the beaches and I did a project about it for school. I am an animal lover and was horrified to see a dead sea bird trapped in fishing line, and I have seen other animals effected by the marine rubbish, also I don’t want to be surfing in dirty water! This made me decide to start running beach cleans with my mum to try to clean the beaches as much as possible and encourage my friends to help me. Being an SAS Rep is totally awesome and it makes me really proud to know I am trying to help. Hopefully I will work for them one day (when I’m not surfing!)
I love surfing, stand up paddle boarding, cliff jumping, swimming, mountain biking, kick boxing and ,of course, animals AND being an SAS Rep!
