With the long break between world tour events, I've been keeping busy with life..... Working extra hours, plenty of swell chasing, scoring some cool video clips with my GoPro camera , just learnt iMovie (currently producing my own vids -coming soon!), creating the new Milkshakes range of bodyboards, and even took up Women's League Tag (kinda like OzTag football) -for some extra fitness... It's so much fun! ha.
Here's a frame grab from a pit I scored at my local beach recently with my GoPro cam:
So, the IBA World Tour calendar has been recently updated for the remainder of the year, and there's a couple of exciting new events :)
The new event I'm most excited about is in Puerto Rico. I've been wanting to go there for years, so I'm stoked to have a good excuse to go, plus it's a major event for women with the biggest prizemoney the girls have ever been offered! Yew!
So, with many thanks to www.milkshakesdesigns.com, my flights for the Sintra and Miss Sumol events have just been booked! :) Plus, I've also got 6 days in Japan booked for immediately afterwards. I'll be travelling there with 2x World champ, Damian King, doing promos for Milkshakes/Turbo, and competing in a national event there :) Can't wait!!!
Soooo stoked, as Japan is another country I've been dying to go to for years!
Pretty pumped for the remainder of the year. And excited for the second Aussie Tour event to be held this weekend at Cronulla. I'm competing in Pro women's on Sunday, fingers crossed for a win! :P

Thanks for visiting.
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.
