Meet 20-year-old model and surfer, Ellie-Jean Coffey. Hailing from Coolangatta on the sunny Gold Coast, she’s never in one spot for too long. Tripping around the globe in search of the best swell (with her family in tow), she is following her passion in the hopes of one day taking out the World Tour.

In Ep 3, Ellie surfs her heart out in preparation for the next WQS event and volunteers for an organisation called Surf Strong.  Surf Strong, based in Playa San Blas, El Salvador, is a surf school and youth center which works with local at-risk youth. They provide surf lessons free of charge to and a safe and secure space for these kids to grow into well rounded adults, opening more opportunities for additional education and employment. As El Salvador has a history of Gang Warfare anything the community can do to keep the kids off the street and educate them is really beneficial.  Ellie took them for a Surf lesson and got to know the girls.
