Twenty-eight-year-old "Sam," as she prefers to be called, started her journey in Sydney Australia, where she lived for 25 years before relocating to Aloha Lagoon to be closer to her family. She has always had a love of the surf, and even though she grew up on the beaches of Sydney, she was born in L.A. She loves anything to do with the water, and she has always felt that surfing is a very natural thing. She holds a first aid certificate and a Certificate II in Public Safety (Aquatic Rescue). She is a team player with exceptional organizational skills and adores children! For Sam, teaching children a love of the surf is not a job—it's an absolute pleasure!
