Hi, my name is Sofia Mulanovich. My discipline is surfing competition. My friends call me Sofi or Sof. I was born on 24 June 1983 in Lima, Peru. My special talent is surfing and competing. My philosophy of life is take life lightly, not seriously. My favourite food is ceviche. My favourite music is everything right now.


Sofia carries a nation on her back, and that nation is the always-beautiful Peru.

When she won the surf-stoked country’s first world title in 2004, the nation went absolutely bonkers. And, since then, she’s carried them.

She’s been their heroine. A celebrity worth celebrating, a ripper, and so much more. Sofia is awesome and continues to produce results on tour into 2016.
