Welcome to the team!

“We’ve been following Kirra’s journey for a while and it made perfect sense to invite Kirra to become an ambassador. She is young role model in her local community and around to world to many. 

She has found her passion in surfing but just as important in helping others. Kirra somehow finds the time, but her side business is teaching all-levels to surf and functional training of other high performance athletes and volunteer of several charities.”

Growing up

Originally from South Australia, my family moved to Noosa, Sunshine Coast when I was about 2 years old, so I grew up surfing the points and beach breaks. I’ve always loved dabbling in a range of activities from surfing, tennis, golf and playing piano. When I graduated high school I studied a Bachelor in Business & Bachelor in Sport & Exercise Science at University of the Sunshine Coast, from there I found what I loved and just fell into the work that I do now.

I run my own surf coaching and fitness business, I know a lot about surfboard design after working at Classic Malibu and am now sponsorship by them 🙂 

The past few years I have competed on the WSL World Longboard Tour all round the world. I have previously  won gold in shortboard and longboard surfing at both State and Australian Surf Lifesaving Titles and enjoy riding both boards whatever the conditions hold. I love what I do! 

“I have to be in the water for hours each day but I was taught from a very early age the importance of protecting my skin and keeping sun safe. I love bakslap’s ultra-modern approach to sun safety. That we all can enjoy the sun, just do so responsibly”

Q&A with Kirra

There was an awesome Q&A with Kirra done recently by the local Noosa media team ‘Boom Shankar’. 

What feeling do you get when being in the water?

“It’s a feeling of excitement…. When I see a good set coming it’s as if I can feel the joy it will bring before even catching the wave. The ocean also is a place to clear my head and find some focus, away from my calendar and the rest of the business that life creates.
