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.
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'm looking for assistance to help me achieve my dream of becoming world champion, and also showcasing girls charging in waves of consequence. If you think you can help, shoot me an email at: lillypollard81@yahoo.com.au
Many thanks to my current sponsors for their support: Flipmode Clothing, Hive Swimwear, GoPro cameras, Zion Wetsuits, Travel Insurance Direct, BoogerBod training and Treehugger Wax.

Reunion MANAPANY Festival goes OFF!!

Just got home from the magical Reunion Island, wow, what a trip!
Only spent six days in that beautiful place, but just loved it.
I went for the Manapany Festival as part of the IBA Women's World Tour, and ended up placing equal third in the event. Even though I would obviously prefer to win and was a little upset at losing in yet another semi-final, I'm fairly happy with my result because my good friend and the local hero of Manapany, Roxane Bonet, went on to win the event.
The island was incredible, the people so lovely, the waves fun, the water so beautiful, and so many fun times with the bodyboarders at the event. The time went too quick!

So, after bagging a third in my pocket in Reunion, I'm now in second place on the World Tour!!!
Next week I'm driving up to Port Macquarie for the next Grand Slam event on the Tour, pretty amped about it as I've surfed Port Mac in a lot of Aussie Tour contests over the years, and always get good results ;) Last time we had a World Tour event at this place (in 2005) I won the contest! So I'm feeling confident and excited for the upcoming event.

Murky brown waters from recent floods, a barrage of North-East swells which created a big sandbar at Pipeline, and winds of up to 40 knots left organisers with no other option but to
