Meet the surfers...Jalaan Slabb, 12, Bundjalung.
Hi my name is Jalaan, I have been surfing since before I could even walk. My Dad, Joel, couldn't wait to get my on a board and in the water.
My favourite surfers are Joel Parkinson & Carissa Moore but I have also been lucky enough to surf with some other amazing surfers such as Stephanie Gilmore, Coco Ho, Tyler Wright, Courtney Conlogue and more.
My surfing highlights would be surfing in the 2016 & 2017 WSL Juraki Teams Challenge where I teamed up with Stephanie Gilmore and Coco Ho.
I'm stoked to be a member of Snapper Board Riders, the Juraki Junior Surf Team and also Salt Performance Training. My sponsors are Tall Poppy Surf and Smart Leash Co and thanks to JS industries I get to surf on an awesome JS 5'6 Monsta 6, with fins & grip from sideways surf and wax from Palmers Wax.
My favourite surf breaks are my local, the Causey, Snapper Rocks and Kirra Point. I love surfing in my back yard with my Dad, brothers, little sister, uncle and cousins.
I can't wait to surf in the Juraki Surf Invitational 2017, see ya out there 🏄🏽♀️🏄🏽♀️🏄🏽♀️ @jalaan.surfergirl #indigenoussurfing #fingalhead #goldcoast #northernnsw #aboriginal #jurakisurfculture #jurakisurfinvitational2017 #surfergirl #seeyaoutthere #smartleashco #tallpoppy #sidewayssurf #jsindustries #wsl #snapperboardriders #snapperrules #meetthesurfers
