Women Fitness joins the superbly talented surfer and Instagram star for an interesting conversation about her career, fitness and healthy goals.
From surfing to modelling and now being able to share your journey with thousands that watched you on TV! You’ve had quite an incredible journey till now and it looks absolutely bright in the future too! Tell us about your first reaction when you were contacted to be a part of love Island in 2018? Do you plan on doing other reality shows too?
I was actually contacted by love island the year prior to be on the show but in that time I was still unsure on wether or not I was going to return to the surf tour, and I was also weary that I was maybe not mentally ready for such a life changing experience. But when they contacted me for last year’s I knew that I was ready and I was so excited at the prospect of heading in to the love island villa, and still to this day seems so surreal that I was actually in there it was such an amazing experience that I will be forever thankful for.
I had such an amazing time in the villa I but at the moment I’m really happy with my focus however I wouldn’t rule out the more challenge based reality shows. I LOVE a challenge .
In an interview you said, “Being a surfer and travelling the world and modelling put all these pressures on me as a girl growing up in that industry.” Tell us more about the pressures you faced as a young model and surfer?
I think for a young female in a male dominatied sport you have to grow thick skin very fast and learn to give as good as you get . Aside from being away from my family for most part of the year from the age of 15 which was for sure tough at times it also has made me the person I am today and I truly believe I wouldn’t be where I am today if I hadn’t had to grow up and learn all the things I had to at such a young age .
I think the things I found the hardest as time went on were the pressures that I put on my self to always be the best I’m VERY competitive which is amazing when you are in a competition but if things don’t go to plan it makes you really punish your self and that was hard for me to always get a grasp on , and the modelling side of it was the same I always wanted to deliver the best photos and look the best I could and when social media came around I started to think that I was never looking as good as the other girls and that was hard for a young girl .
You are healthy & look fit now and much more body confident. Share with us the workout routine that you follow to look this way?
I love working out and always have it just does something to my mind that makes me feel so good, I like to do a variety of different things, obviously surfing I love to run, cycle, yoga, skate, pilates, weights, and I do a bunch of different gym classes too.
