A seeker of wild places and warm blue water, Belinda’s heart has always been set in the ocean. A passionate all-around surfer, she’s perhaps best known for her graceful and technically accomplished longboard style. Bindy has a wandering spirit, but her roots are planted on the coast of Australia. “Time in the ocean,” she says, “is like returning home.” Mother to a 6 year old boy, she has a strong passion for environmental protection and preservation of all living things for the future generations. Belinda believes that living an examined everyday life is one easily attainable way forward to positive change in the current environmental crisis.
