Zoe is thrilled to be representing the United States at her first ISA event, heading into her second season as a member of the USA Jr. National Team, and couldn't be more proud to represent her hometown of Half Moon Bay in Northern California.

Some of Zoe's favorite contest results have been winning the USA Prime event at pumping Huntington Beach last year, and making the U-18 final at U.S. Champs this year at Lowers.

Beyond competitive shortboarding, Zoe was proud to become one of the youngest females ever to paddle into a wave at Mavericks last season at 16 years old, and to be nominated for Best Female Performer at The Mavericks Surf Awards. At home, her favorite waves are Kelly St, Steamer Lane, The Jetty (when it breaks!), and Mavericks. She loved spending most of last winter in Hawaii where she caught some of the best waves of her life at Backdoor Pipe, Haleiwa and V-Land, and is excited to return to Hawaii next month.

When she's not surfing or in school, Zoe is a proud member of the California State Parks Lifeguards, where she helps protect the coast between Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz.

She'd love to thank her family, friends, sponsors and the entire town of Half Moon Bay for all their support.

I love living in San Clemente, and enjoy surfing all of the different waves. I surf with my friends all around town, mostly at Lowers and sometimes T street or State Park. I started surfing because my dad and older brothers were always in the water and I wanted to be like them.   My favorite thing in the world is surfing with my dad and my brothers at home or on surf trips. My favorite surf destinations are Fiji, El Salvador, Indonesia and Mexico. I have a passion for competitive surfing, I started competing when I was 9 years old and haven't stopped. Competitive accomplishments include NSSA National Champion, Grom Search National Champ 2X and USA Surfing National team.

I'm from Florida. Started surfing seriously in 2018. I travel to Kauai to visit my grandparents and love surfing there. My favorite surf trip was to Indonesia. I have 8 east coast championship surfing titles. 10 NSSA nationals finals finishes. I love my surf community and I host my own Grom surf comp for all the local kids and reuse all my old trophies for it. The Oceanwalk pro. I make big paper checks and give away money to the winners. Last year I had my first full year surfing the North American QS and Junior QS at age 13/14 and finished 19th on the QS and 9th on the Junior. This year I am half way through the QS for my second year and I am currently ranked 6th. My favorite QS comp so far as the OBX Pro where I made the final in amazing waves. My next favorite was the Super Girl Pro QS 3,000 in Jacksonville because all of my friends got to come surf my hometwown and I could host them.
