Pins on strings
Her name is Sophie Hellyer, she’s known for her silky style on a short board and her magic hand at bowling.
We’ve been doing little bits and pieces with Soph for a while now and we dig her. Her surf career started at the Westward Ho surf club when she was 14. She lives opposite of Instow beach, where she walks her sister’s dog Nessie. Her favourite waves are in North Devon and when she’s not surfing, you’ll often find her throwing strikes (in the children’s lane – only playing Ms Sophie) at Bowlingo, where the pins are held up with strings.
As she prepares to throw yet another strike, she stands focused during her pre-throw routine and kept warm in a spring weight Cirrus – they’re so hot right now.
You rock Ms Sophie!
