My name is Lilly and I'm a bodyboarder from Werri Beach in NSW Australia :)

I am winner of the Australasian Pro Tour in 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2012.
I just finished in 7th place on the 2013 IBA World Tour, my dream is to bring the World Title back to Australia!

My main aim is to promote happiness, kindness, healthy living and to always be pushing yourself in some kind of venture. I love travelling, I love good barrelling waves and chasing swells all over the world, and I love the dedication needed to be a good competitor.
I'm always keeping my Facebook athlete page updated with all my adventures, so be sure to 'like' my page to stayed informed: https://www.facebook.com/bodyboarderlillypollard

I thought I'd start my blog with a list of my best contest results from the past three years. If I listed all my results from my past 13 years of competing it would get a little boring huh!

Sponsors love contest results, and while I may have started out a little shy and uncertain in my first years of competing, I have to admit, that I have really grown to love competition. Especially in pumping waves! Here's me in the 2007 Pipe contest >>>>>>>>>

Basically, my biggest highlights are winning the Australian title four times, the IBA Australasian Pro Tour four times (2006, 07, 08 & 2010), placing Equal first at Pipeline in 2005 (A shark in the lineup stopped competition!), and my peak was probably winning the EL Confital IBA Womens World Tour (WWT) contest in Canary Islands in 2007(pic at top is my winning wave at Confital). I love that wave and
that event! I finished at 3rd on the WWT tour that year.

I have to admit, I have struggled to afford to do contests over the years, so as much as I love the world tour, I haven't competed on it very regularly in my time. I am super keen to commit to it, and would love the sponsorship opportunities to do it!

Anyway, here's my promised results:
