Sneaking Through The Ally With Sally


  • Sneaking Through The Ally With Sally

    Sally Fitzgibbonsis one of the hottest women surfers on the planet at the moment, and we mean that figuratively and literally. She just completed an interview with Red Bull Australia

    Sally Fitzgibbons is a three-time ASP world title runner-up and oh-no-narrowly missed out on her maiden world surfing crown in Hawaii last December. But as professional surfing ushers in a new era under the all-new World Surf League (WSL) banner, the tour veteran at just 24 years of age welcomes the new season with glee.

    The summer break offered a time for reflection but little rest, with Sally as determined as ever to scale the highest peak in women’s surfing and putting in the hard yards over the holidays to do so.

    Because if we learned anything last year it’s that the talent in the women’s surfing pool is stronger than ever and getting stronger every day. And Sally’s taken note.

    As you’ll find out below, Sally’s more confidant than ever in the future of women’s surfing as she changes up her game for 2015 in an effort to finally grasp that coveted silverware.

    RB: Sal! So our sources suggest you didn’t spend much time relaxing during the off-season?

    SF: I always have a pretty fun-filled off-season. I love doing a huge variety of things and one of my favourite parts was doing the Sydney to Hobart Yacht race. It was an absolutely incredible experience and so unique to able to join a professional team as a rookie and learn from the best!

      by Photoboy

      Kahla Preston writes for Children often develop intense fixations, and for a young Sally Fitzgibbons it was the Olympic Games. From age five, she would imagine herself in Rocky-style movie montages as she threw herself into various sports. The "weird infatuation" was only cemented when she saw Cathy Freeman win gold at Sydney 2000. "Every time I'd finish running around the block or riding my BMX, I'd be like, 'Coming down the home straight, she's gonna...
