I am 17 years old from cape town, I live at a big closeout beach break called Llandudno, I've been lucky enough to have an amazing older brother called Luke, who is a very talented surfer and has been to ISA a few times, so he has shared some knowledge with me from his past experiences .My sister Mary is a great longboarder ,basically my whole family are surfers so I've been brought up in the surfing environment from a young age , the last 2 years I have been homeschooled so I am always spending multiple hours in the water a day. I love South Africa because it has got such a variety of different waves, we have the east coast and the cold west coast which can often be very uncrowded ( see #protectthewestcoast ). Really looking forward to where surfing is gonna take me,I am loving the journey.

I’ve been surfing for 3 and a half years because I didn’t surf in 2020 ~One of my old classmate’s told me all about the club and one day she decided to invite me, that was towards the end of January in 2018. On that day my life changed for the better. ~Well the SNSC surf club was like a distraction for me in a good way. When I was frustrated I surfed, excited I surfed and when I was bored all I thought of was surfing. The love for surfing and the ocean grew and that kept me away from joining any dangerous gangs and hanging out with the wrong people. ~Girl Surf Too isn’t just girls surfing to me, it’s girls bonding and getting together to do what we love doing together as a family. Helping each other out and learning from our mistakes. ~Yes, surfing did change my life for the better. I feared the ocean and anything to do with it, that fear left as soon as I got up on that pink surfboard as Coach Sandile watched me ride the wave all the way to the sand. She lives in Durban and has been a member of the Girls Surf Too crew, which is part of Surfers Not Street Children. Indiphile has been competing for a few years and has competed in the Ballito pro 2021 and the South African surfing champs She rides for Spider Murphy/Safari Surfboards and Surfers Not Street Children.

My name is Luke Thompson, I'm from Durban, South Africa and I'm a surfer.

I love chasing swells and trying to find perfect waves with no one out. I hope to one day be on the world tour competing with the best surfers in the world at the best waves in the world.
