I first met @planet_claire (aka. Youmans) when she was our guest onboard a @liquiddestination charter back in the 2012 season. Super frothing on the fact that a) I had rad chicks to surf with on our charter and b) she was a fellow Kiwi (au👊) - Claire was the first adopter of the new #surfleggings I’d had made after she was getting burnt the first couple of days into the trip (exactly!). Timed with one of the biggest swells that season, I was stoked to have other women charging well-overhead waves in the lineup - if she can do it, so can I!
A Physio by profession & long time member of the @bondigirlssurfriders club in Sydney, you can now find Youmans back in one our homeland’s premier surf regions, Gisborne, living in a very cool renovated church-cottage across the road from a pumping beach break. When I think of Youmans it’s all long of limb, rubbing up pro surfers during WCT comps ;) and ladyballs.
Stoked you had an epic trip in the Ments this year Youmans!
Claire wears our ♻️Libby high waist leggings and surf tank.
