This lovely surfer soul impressed me a lot when I first have seen her Blog “The Tale of a Mermaid”! As soon as your on it you get this mix feeling of so much passion, love for every detail and this great vitality for life! Which is exactly the way Devon cerate’s her lifetime. She is an amazing surfer and writer and is not scared of sharing her passion with the whole world. With her biggest love to “Saltwater” she inspires us in a very special way, exploring the world, their wave`s and nooks. I am really happy to say “Let`s get to know Devon” with all her love and experiences!
HI DEVON HOW ARE YOU AND WHAT ARE YOU DOING AT THE MOMENT?
Hi Tanja. I’m doing well. I just got back from surfing. We have a new south swell in the water, so I went out early before it got too crowded. Then I ran into my friend Ben, saw my dad paddling out and came home to make some peanut butter toast and a smoothie before work.
YOU ARE A SURFER AND WRITER, WHAT DOES THAT MEAN TO YOU?
Being a surfer and writer makes me feel like I am free to be who I was meant to be.
BESIDES SURFING YOU AS WELL LOVE TO SKATE, WHATS THE BIG DIFFERENT BETWEEN THOSE TWO RAD SPORTS?
I like how you can go up, down, sideways, backwards and every which-way with skateboarding. It’s a very creative sport that also gives you an adrenaline rush and challenges your mind to make your body do methodical movements with flow and style, but I have a much deeper spiritual connection with surfing because of the ocean. My real passion is for saltwater.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR LIFE?
Happy. Loud. Passionate. Quiet. Evolving.
YOU TRAVEL AROUND THE WHOLE WORLD, WHAT WAS YOUR BEST EXPERIENCE?
I don’t know if I can pick just one and in some ways I always keep the idea that the best is yet to come in mind, so even though I’ve had amazing adventures surfing around the world with my husband, friends and family, I like to think that there are still so many more adventures yet to be had that stand a chance at being the best, at least for a moment.
WHATS YOUR BIGGEST GOAL FOR YOUR UP COMMING TIME?
To have a healthy pregnancy, get back on my board after and keep pushing myself to be better. To impact the action sports industry in a positive way, even if it’s in a small way. I want the things I do, write and create to resonate with people. I want to be as honest and true to myself and my feelings and experiences as I can be.
“DEVON SURFING FROM 20-30 WEEKS PREGNANT – HOW LOVELY?!”
DO YOU HAVE A HINT FOR THE CHIXXS OUT THEIR WHO WOULD LOVE TO EXPLORE AS YOU DO?
Take a surf trip to somewhere you haven’t heard many people have visited. There are so many unexplored waves and nooks and crannies of this earth that will help you see things like you never have before. Sometimes when you visit a place that you’ve heard a lot about, your experience might be tainted by what you’ve heard or seen from other people. I think it’s important to seek an original experience for yourself.
THANKS DEVON FOR YOUR TIME – THIS IS AMAZING!
