Surfing has always a very popular activity in Australia.

Quincy is only 7 years old and she won her first tournament at the age of four years old. Quincy is so good that she puts even some hardened surf veterans to shame.
Quincy is not only a surfer, but she’s also an amazing skateboarder as well. Quincy started skating during a period when waves were becoming very big and her parents thought it’d be too dangerous for her to surf them at her age.
