Paige Hareb is awesome.
She’s always salty, on an adventure and trains her mind and body hard. With an infectious grin she makes competing against the world's best look easy!

Paige is the perfect challenge for Ama so we had her put our 'Ocean' balm to the test and got to know her a little more.
What is your first surfing memory?
Surfing at my local Oakura beach everyday with my best friend since we were about 5years old. I have a pretty funny photo of me doing a big wide poo stance and wearing a Gath helmet!
When you inspire so many, who is your inspiration?
I think you can get inspiration from so many different people in your everyday life, they don't need to be famous to be inspiring, as long as you pick out the good bits from everyone and learn along the way then you'll be motivated and do pretty well for yourself.
How does surfing everyday take a toll on your skin?
I don't even want to know what I'm going to look like in 10 years time haha but I have tried to be pretty safe, wearing SPF block and/or moisturizer everyday, always cleaning my skin every morning and night and just trying to keep it the best I can. Ama Balm definitely helps and feels so soothing at night putting it on a dried out salty face!
What are you goals for the 2nd half of 2016?
I'm still well within reach of qualifying for the WSL Womens World tour so my main goal is that, I also want to be the fittest and healthiest I can be, explore more of the world and have fun with it all!
What does being adventurous mean to you?
Stepping outside your comfort zone, seeing new places, trying new foods and I love the saying my friend and I use at home a lot "Adventures begin when the planning stops". It doesn't matter where you are in the world, I still have great adventures right at home in my backyard!
Enjoy achieving your goals Paige! We'll be cheering from the sidelines.
Let Paige take you along on her journey by following her on
