Garazi Sanchez is a young pro surfer who is currently paying her dues on the World Surf League’s qualifying series. Nothing too unusual there, perhaps, but dig a little deeper into what makes this powerful and fast Basque surfer tick, and you’ll see why she inspires us. Contests may be her current focus, but for Garazi it’s a passion for travel, adventure and the ocean that truly drives her. A future female Kepa? Who knows, but for us, Garazi represents optimism, and youthful potential.
