We were lucky enough to catch up with one of the best, Sally Fitzgibbons ahead of the upcoming season to talk all things surfing, inspiration and new beginnings and the business of surfing.
Thanks for taking the time to chat with us today. We’re going to kick things off and go back to when you were growing up. For someone like me who was reasonably average at most sports through school, I’d love to know what it’s like being good at just about everything you do? In particular Surfing and Athletics.
Haha, I reckon you have some skills stored deep in your brain. It was all about the environment I was fortunate enough to grow up in.
My parents gave me opportunities to explore and learn. Try thing, try again and again and again haha because that’s what it takes to learn a skill.
My small headland surrounded by water that I grew up on allowed my imagination to go wild and play before school and after school and in-between.
