Hi, I’m Natasha.  I’m 14 years old from Taranaki, New Zealand.  I was totally hooked on surfing from the moment I had my first ever surf when I was 9 at Waitarere beach near Levin.

The highlights of my surfing career so far must be winning the new U16 girls’ national champ at the 2019 Surfing NZ Nationals in Taranaki, and coming third in the U18 women’s division. I also won the U16 girls division at the first event of the 2019 Billabong Grom Series in Mount Maunganui, the U14 and U16 divisions at the 2018 Raglan Secondary Schools and U14 division at the 2018 Scholastics in Gisborne.

When I’m not out surfing I really enjoy chillin by playing the guitar, playing board games with my family and spending time with my dog Inca and cat Fizz.

I’m working really hard at the moment towards becoming stronger, improving my technique and competing more overseas.
