Favorite Surf Spot: Cloudbreak in Fiji
A professional surfer who has been competing on the World Surf League Women’s Championship Tour since 2011, Courtney is known for her gritty determination, incredible work ethic, and ability to wear multiple hats. Besides being known as an athlete, she is also a brand ambassador, spokesperson, social media advertiser and entrepreneur to name just a few. Her passion is a driving force in everything she does, including her involvement with AWOW.
Courtney became involved with AWOW in 2015 via Board Member Steven Lippman. They began speaking about what AWOW represented and what it did for children and families. She was instantly intrigued, so when AWOW held their next event she was there.
Courtney’s dad taught her to surf at a very young age and she considers it one of her greatest gifts in life. She has turned that gift into a power that she can use and pass on to bring simple joys to AWOW’s athletes. For her, one of the greatest moments in surfing is standing on a board for the first time, gliding across the ocean, than paddling back out to catch another wave. Sharing in those moments with others is amazing and inspirational. Through AWOW she gets to share her love and passion for surfing and inspire young athletes.
