Home grown Californian and pro surfer, Holly Beck, epitomises the wholesome surfing lifestyle. With regular activities that include surfing, skateboarding, TRX, or yoga, Holly seldom sits idle.

Super surf girl Holly Beck first discovered a surfboard in 1995 when she was on a family holiday in Waikiki, Hawaii. Her mum was not too impressed because she believed surfing was unsafe, but Holly adored the sport and she started practicing as soon as she returned to California. Holly Beck adopted an old board from her uncle and began riding waves daily at 4 am at a beach close to her house. Holly later joined her high school surf team and in her 1st year won the Bay League Championship.

In 1996, Holly Beck started surfing in the National Scholastic Surfing Association and won many titles in the open and explorers class. Her success with the NSSA gave Holly much exposure and got her sponsored by one of the world's biggest surfboard manufacturer, Rusty Surfboards.

As a former NSSA National Champion, Holly Beck spent several years travelling the world to contend against many of the best women surfers in the world, before hanging up the jersey to spend more time focusing on adventure travel. Favoured surfing experiences for the goofy footer include pulling in to surging barrels and relishing the solitude and serenity that the ocean can offer.

Holly Beck is living the dream. She is another constitutional part of the Body Glove fellowship and they are enjoying the course she has adopted and the path she is on. Holly was won the best amateur surfers in the USA in both high school and college where she gained a degree in Psychology and a Masters in Marketing at UCSD. After years on the circuit she has now sculpted an astonishing niche through surfing, modelling, writing, constructing houses in Nicaragua and operating surf and yoga hideaways in her adopted home of Nicaragua.

Now, stepping aside from the worry and stress of competitive surfing, Holly Beck has plans to travel to other dream destinations off her list whilst endeavouring to make each trip as significant as possible, by joining with the local culture, enhancing awareness of environmental and social issues, and commemorating her adventures in writing and photographs to inspire other people to go out and search the world whilst making a difference. She's collaborated with Save The Waves to help make that difference, and protect those extraordinary places she feels so favored to be able to visit.

The only thing better than a girl that's a great surfer is a hot girl that's a great surfer. Holly Beck's combination of outstanding beauty and severe board riding ability has allowed her to begin an extremely successful modelling vocation. Holly Beck has now done model and surf girl shoots in Mexico, Hawaii, and California and has been sported in Teen People and Rolling Stone magazine. In 2003, Holly Beck starred in the WB show, Boarding House: North Shore, a reality television program about a group of surfer’s cohabitation and contending in the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing.

Holly Beck, surf girl from Palos Verdes, California only began riding waves when she was fifteen. She's now counted as one of the best female surfers around.
