Born and raised on the North Shore of Oahu, Laura developed a strong affinity for the ocean at an early age. Her adolescence was spent surfing her home break of Haleiwa until dusk each day. This ocean-centric lifestyle shaped the person Laura is today. Currently in San Francisco, Laura spends most of her time braving the fog in search of chilly peelers and partaking in surf travel whenever possible. Having surfed in El Salvador, Portugal and New Zealand, Laura is endlessly grateful for the experiences surfing has provided and seeks to continue exploring the world’s coastlines and cultures. As a way of giving back Laura offers surf and yoga instruction within the Bay Area and is particularly motivated to work with women looking to grow their surfing. As an ambassador of aloha and positive change in the world Laura firmly believes that everyone deserves a place in the line-up.
