Sophie was born and raised in Atlantic Beach, Florida. At the age of four, her dad put her on a board in the water and she instantly fell in love with the ocean. At the age of 8, in her first surf contest, Sophie connected to the sport and met her best friends, who she still surfs with to this day. Competition has taken her on many trips to beautiful places, and has inspired her to live a very active lifestyle. Out of all the places she’s been to, her favorite wave to surf is Upper Trestles in San Clemente, California.
When Sophie isn’t drawing lines in the water, skate park or snow, she’s drawing, painting and sketching. After getting into art at a young age, being creative comes naturally to her. She is constantly inspired from her travels, nature and surfing. Sophie’s strong connection to the ocean shows through in her art, with her designing media around waves, reefs, sea life and flowers.
Sophie’s future goals include competing on the world tour, allowing her to surf in Australia, Fiji and Indo. She hopes to always inspire others through her art and healthy lifestyle. Sophie’s life motto is that you have to work hard for your dreams.
