Top destination: Lakey Peak, Sumbawa - Indonesia
Inspired by: My brother Harry (pro surfer), his surfing, and my love for the ocean.
Georgie Timson has had surfing firmly on her radar since a young age. Moving with her family to Cornwall in 2004 meant she was able to take to the sea with her three brothers and dad Vince, a surf coach, on a daily basis. She’s notched up some great results on the British circuit, winning Night Surf in 2015 and taking second place last year.
France has always been the summer haunt of the Timson clan, a home from home, where the waves, climate and French patisseries make for the perfect combination! Further afield, Georgie made her first trip to Indonesia last winter, to surf top class waves in a completely different setting and, although it took a little time to adjust to the new conditions, she feels it changed her style for the better.
Finishing her A-levels in 2016 has meant Georgie has been able to completely dedicate her time to surfing, heading out to Australia at the start of this year and with a second trip to Indonesia to follow. Surfing on the global scene is something she finds both daunting and exhilarating and we’re excited to watch her push herself to the next level.
With her burgeoning love of travel and for life lived outdoors, Georgie makes the perfect match as an advocate for the Animal brand. She describes being in the sea as addictive, the exhilarating feeling of the unknown as you ride a wave; an adventure-seeking attitude we share.
