ROOTS:

I’m blessed and grateful to have grown up into a family of water woman. My grandmother Bobbie was a junior olympic diver, surfer and bodysurfer. My Mother :Dearest, Jericho Poppler, is a surfing pioneer, USA surfing champion, 1976 World Champion Surfer, cancer survivor, a 2004 inductee to the Surfer’s Hall of Fame, 1990 Women of the Year, a founding member of Surfrider, WISA (Women's International Surfing Association) and the IPS, conceived in the late 70's and what would become the world professional circuit of surfing. Jericho has left and continues to leave a indelible legacy on the sport.  

Pre-WSL (World Surf League) & ASP (Association of Surfing Professionals); Jericho founded the International Professional Surfers’ female surfing tour in 1976, in which she was the inaugural year’s World Champion. Jericho also founded WISA, the Women's International Surfing Association and was the lead member of the Golden Girls. You can find her in The Encyclopedia of Surfing in the stories of individual hearts she has touched around the world; in the photographs from decades past; in countless magazines, journals and videos of her era; but most likely you’ll find her in the water, still ripping!  In her 60's she continues to pave pathways as the pioneer that she is stand-up paddling through lakes, rivers, open-ocean racing. 

She has raised me on the ocean, inspiring a reverence and understanding for nature so great and profound, I’ve yet to find the words that can describe it.  It’s an understatement to say that growing up within an aquatic culture has formed my worldview. It’s an honor to follow in her footsteps; gratitude for simply being is what fuels my joy.
