We love Stephanie Gilmore. Steph is beautiful, intelligent, easy going and fun. She’s a World Champion surfer 6 times over. And then, there’s that smile.

Steph has one of the most genuine smiles you will ever see. Her smile reflects a person who has clearly unlocked the secret of success both holistically and professionally. 
In competition she’s a smiling assassin. If she’s grinning, she’s winning. Usually in that order too - if she’s walking down the beach for her heat with a grin LOOK OUT. 
Behind that killer smile is a cheeky competitive fire that confirms she's very serious but also knows how to switch off and enjoy herself. 
Outside of competition Steph loves to travel, play her guitar, take photos, keep up with fashion, hang with her family and friends and therefore is a pretty typical 28 year old woman. Humble and confident, she is a true inspiration to women and men all over the world.
Her advice to young girls chasing their dreams is this "be open to learning and have fun".
Yeah Steph, it's fun watching you too.

The Lagoon Collective boys spent a day in the life of Steph Gilmore with the ROXY surf squad around Trestles Beach and San Clemente in Southern California leading into the Swatch Women's Pro.
