“What I love most about surfing is that it’s my first love,” says six-time ASP World Tour surfing champion Stephanie Gilmore (@stephaniegilmore). “It’s the first thing I can remember being consumed by. Every time I go to the beach, it just feels right—like it’s where I should be.”
Born and raised near Brisbane, Australia, where she still lives, Stephanie learned to surf the long point breaks of the Gold Coast. “When you grow up surfing, you learn to read the waves and the ocean,” she says. “You get that knowledge of what waves to take. For me it’s all about listening to my instincts.”
This week Stephanie’s instincts were put to the test
