We got an email telling us about this rad surfer girl who lives down south, so of course we had to check her out. Super glad we did, because it turns out, she surfs & skates. We also loved that surfing is her main focus, as we haven't had a chance to do a Who's Rad on a surfer girl yet, so we are super stoked to introduce you Brooke! In fact, days after meeting her via email she was asked to be on flow for Volcom - congrats Brooke! Keep any eye on her, as Brooke is totally looking like she will for sure be a double threat!  xx

Three Things You Don't Know About Me:

1. It takes me a while to learn new tricks, but when I get them I want to learn more. 
2. I always wear high socks when I skate and I love my Stances. 
3. Doby from Harry Potter freaks me out!!!!

What's Next?   This past year I really got into surf competitions and started doing NSSA Jr. events and a few other local events.  I'm super excited because in my first season I did pretty good.  So far, I've won 1st place 3 times and reached the finals a few other times.  I still have a couple more contests left for the season and I hope I continue to improve.  I was stoked to have 2 sponsorships too!
