My Hawaiian Adventure, by Elle Ferguson
Last year, we teamed up with Billabong Women’s to send fashion icon and SurfStitch advocate Elle Ferguson to Hawaii during peak surfing season. She hung with the pros, hit the beach, attended events, and explored the well-publicized North Shore from a refreshingly different point of view.
This week, we caught up with her to find out how the trip went…
Late November last year I received and email from the team at Billabong which simply read in the subject line ‘want to come to pipeline in Hawaii?’ Needless to say my bags were packed and I was on that plane with no questions asked… When someone says a once in a life time experience you imagine your wildest dreams to come true and that they did spending pipeline 2015 with the amazing team from Billabong.
From arriving at turtle bay resort on the north shore of Hawaii with a room full of gifts to sitting next to the elite athletes that compete at pipe during the surfer poll awards I was pinching myself that this was real life.
Having experienced the beauty of Hawaii before I had only imagined the magic that happened in the Billabong house that I had driven past many times before pretending that I was Kate Bosworth from Blue Crush… But this trip I actually was in the Billabong house watching pipe with the team!!!
This trip has been to date the most unbelievable experience of my life… Shooting with Morgan Maassen in some of our fav places around the north shore to just being part of the Billabong ‘family’ I will never forget the once in a life time experience Billabong gave me! All I have to say is 2016 pipe here we come.
