We could not be more proud of Tiare continuing the tradition of strong women surfers representing the club on the international pro circuit. A tradition that began with surf champion Margot Godfrey who won the first Windansea Menehune Contest in 1965 - against the boys! Looking forward, Tiare will represent the USA in Peru to compete in the Pan America Games. To top it off Tiare is finishing up her high school career at La Jolla High as a top performing student. Keep on eye on this girl - what an exciting time!
