Elite Sportswoman. Equality Advocate. Surfing Legend.
Australian professional surfer Stephanie Gilmore is not only the best female surfer in the world, she is a remarkable woman. Born and raised in Northern New South Wales, Australia, Stephanie has dominated women’s professional surfing since she entered the scene in 2007 – winning her first world title as a rookie, followed by three consecutive world titles – an accomplishment no other surfer has achieved in the history of men’s or women’s surfing. In addition to her 7 ASP World Titles, Stephanie has 32 Elite World Tour victories.
For her triumphs, Stephanie has also been awarded both the Laureus World Sports Award in 2010, considered the most prestigious award in action sports worldwide, and the ESPN ESPY for Best Female Action Sports Athlete in 2011 and 2013.
In between competitions on the World Surf League tour, Stephanie is traveling the globe, exploring new waves, cities and beaches, photographing her adventures, playing her many guitars, and living the gypset lifestyle.
Stephanie is committed to giving back. She is passionate about the environment, especially the fight to protect the ocean, and strives to live an eco-friendly life. Stephanie is also a proud MOsister in support of Movember – promoting the awareness of mens health. She works with the Couer de Foret foundation implementing water wells in Senegal, and has been a long time supporter of World Vision sponsoring children in Kenya and Ethiopia.
At the end of 2018, Steph was back to her best, winning her 7th World Title while competing at the Maui Pro and equalling Layne Beachley’s impressive record. With surfing included in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and an 8th World Title in her sights, NC Management cannot wait to see what the future brings for Stephanie.
