ABOUT PAULING MENCZER, Surf Champion Ambassador
Surf Getaways is extremely excited to launch its Surf Champion Ambassador Program, proudly announcing Pauline Menczer as our first Surf Champion Ambassador.
Our Surf Champion Ambassador program celebrates the incredible achievements of top female surfers like Pauline, giving them a platform from which they can be celebrated for their achievements.
As part of this program, our ambassadors will join one of our scheduled surfing tours to chat to our guests, passing on the wisdom they have gained from surfing.
They will be discussing topics like how they have dealt with the inevitable challenges of managing fear, plateauing skills, and challenging conditions. They’ll provide their inside tips on improving and yes, answer those compelling questions about competing and winning in an environment where women’s achievements were marginalized for decades.
Women’s Amateur World Champion in 1988 at just 18, Pauline went on to win the Women’s Pro World Championship in 1993 and in 2018 was inducted into Australia’s Surfing Hall of Fame. She is without doubt one of the great women surfers of all time, possessing a fierce competitive spirit, an undeniable sense of humor, an irreverent approach to living(which we love) combined with a genuine heart of gold.
Pauline represents all the values we hold dear at Surf Getaways. Values like dedication and perseverance in the face of extraordinary obstacles. It’s not commonly known that she suffered from an extreme form of rheumatoid arthritis right through her competitive career and she went on to compete and win anyway.
She has also endured times of tough financial circumstances and family ructions, but she just never lost her generous spirit nor her sense of self and still continues to live her life with a positive attitude, sense of fun and an ongoing love of surfing that inspires us all at Surf Getaways.
Pauline will be a guest at the Surf Getaways Tour in Byron Bay scheduled for October 20-27, 2019.

"I'm so excited to be a part of Surf Getaways and their Surf Champion Ambassador program. It’s a fantastic concept, being able to use all the things I’ve learned from surfing in such a positive way. Using my experiences to help other women reach their full potential is something I’ve become increasingly passionate about and I couldn't be happier doing that with the Surf Getaways crew."
