Witch Wednesday – Meet Jordan

Meet our lovely Jordan! She is 27 and originally from Raglan, New Zealand. Jordan has only recently gotten back into surfing, and we are thrilled to have her as part of our community!

What got you into surfing and what do you love most about it?

My step dad taught me to surf as a teenager, then I got busy with life and didn’t pick up a board for 10+ years. This summer my fiancé got me a surfboard for Christmas because I wanted to get back into it. I am super excited to be back in the waves but I thought it would be like riding a bike and I would pick up where I left off …. it’s not! I’m back in the whitewash again argh!

What do you do for work? Any cool hobbies or interests outside of surfing you want to share with us?

I have an online store selling unique travel gear and bags www.elephantstripes.co.nz and I also work for my partners marketing agency www.myrobotmonkey.com.au

I have a lot of hobbies especially camping, renovating, gardening, snowboarding, dancing, reading, creating artsy things & volunteering

Fave place to surf?

Rainbow / Greenmount

Board of choice?

5’10 fish

Fave surfing experience?

Full moon night surfing with my family and friends as a teen

What do you love about the Surf Witches?

I struggle with anxiety a bit and so I don’t really like to surf on my own, having a community to surf with and a support system and new friends is making all the difference for me getting back out there.

What advice would you share with other women starting out?

Be aware not to put yourself in situations beyond your capabilities and stick at it, it can be a hard sport to get the hang of but it’s so worth it!
