Name: Beth-Antonia
Age: 19
Job: Bairmaid/Waitress, Entertainments Promo Chick, but mostly a student Bum!
Years Surfing: Properly for around a year
Habitat: Cardiff and Swansea
Boards: 2
Beth and her ten toesQuiver: 6'11" 'MMY' Shortie, 8'0" 'Ten toes Over' mal
Local Break: Caswell mainly, but favourite has to be Rhossilli if I have the spondulas to get me there and a clear enough head to get me back up that path afterwards!
Places Surfed: Most of the Gower, Rest Bay, Llantwit, Southerndown, Oh and Mavericks in my dream last night!
Favourite Surf Films: Thicker than water (favourite cd too), Sprout and Islands in the Stream
Worst Wipeout: First time out the back at Rhossilli, just chilling out in the sunshine then realised that I had to catch one in some time. So went for it, ended up getting trashed of course, then when I finally came up for air my beast of a board nailed me on the head. Sweet!
Beth with shortboardFavourite Manoeuvre: Just surfing will do for now
Worst Surfing Habit: Getting scared and winding myself up, then realising it really isn't that bad.
Best Surfing Experience: Camping out at gennith, waking up with the sun and getting straight in the water. Can't beat it.
Weirdest Surfing Experience: Deciding to go out too soon after having mumps (yep I'm a student!) That water spun me out so much, felt like I was in some crazy 80's movie. Decided I had better leave it for that day!
Other Interests: Travelling. Managed to see the delights of India, East coast USA and Ireland so far. Roll on Oz! Dancing, (current president of UWS dance society), Mountain biking (when I don't fall off!), Walking the falster (my puppy!), camping. Anything outdoors really! But my favourite has to be sitting on the beach at night, under the stars with a small flickering fire by my side. Totally Gorge!
