FRIDAY TUNES BY MICHAELA
Describe to us your ultimate dream day…
The ultimate dream day would start with some yummy morning tunes.. Coffee.. Then hit the beach for a day of epic waves and sunshine with some pals and a v large supply of snacks
Favourite surf memory?
The other day a ginormous turtle popped out of the water right next to me. Was pretty special!
Would you describe yourself as an introvert, or an extrovert, or somewhere in the middle?
I’m an extreme combo of both. I can be so loud and outward but then sometimes so shy and quiet.. Depends on my company and surroundings
Do you have any unusual skills?
Can flick my eyelids inside out
What is some advice you would share with someone just getting into surfing?
I’m still pretty new myself but I’d say just go out as much as you can. Try not to get intimidated and try and take some risks.. It definitely helps if you have a buddy of similar skill level for support
If you could be one animal, what would it be?
100% a dolphin
What is an environmental or social issue that sits close to your heart?
So many but pollution, plastic and unnecessary packaging is a really big one for me! Kills me.. And the planet!
What do you catch yourself day-dreaming about?
Sometimes when I’m driving I imagine I’m steering on a big wave
What is a skill you would like to learn and why?
Would love to up my air guitar game and learn the real deal
What is Michela’s life motto?
