I feel surfing, in a way, naturally picked me

Hi, my name is Sally Fitzgibbons. My discipline is surfing competition. My friends call me Sal or Fitzy. I was born on 19 December 1990 in Gerroa, Australia. My special talent is smiling in the face of adversity. My philosophy of life is live your passion and never give up. My favourite food is mangoes. My favourite music is anything that is upbeat, happy and makes you want to dance.


Back in the day, there used to be only two types of professional female surfers: the physically attractive ones and the girls who ripped. The boundaries were clear and there were rarely any crossovers. But Sally Fitzgibbons is a jewel and she shines with the gold of change. She is one of the hottest girls on tour in more ways than one. Her surfing is powerful and innovative and her smile could melt a man. Keep an eye on her, as she is dead-set on bringing home a World Title in the next few years. And, rest assured, she’s going to look damn good doing it.
