She’s the Gold Coast golden girl with a story that warms hearts, and is also a serious talent in the surf. Meet Pacha Light, the 17-year-old sponsored by Billabong after starting her journey with Laura Enever’s second-hand surfboard back in 2011.
If there’s anyone that embodies the importance of having a vision and then working unashamedly to bring it to life, it would have to be Pacha. From humble beginnings she is now surfing on the QS, travelling the world, and inspiring a whole new generation of young female surfers through her work as an ambassador for Surfrider Foundation.
So, without further ado, join us as we chat to Pacha about her favourite ways to fill the days when the sea is as flat as a pancake!
Pacha herself has been dancing since she could walk, and was actually dancing on the roadside when Laura Enever passed her that fateful day back in 2011. Dance is the perfect way to unleash your creative energy in the form of movement on land instead of sea. Put on some Beyoncé and dance like no one’s watching!
