14 year old Kitty Brewer and 17 year old Charlie Rio are not only both Jersey surfers but they have also both recently been successfully selected as Team Riders for the GB Surfing squad.

They will now both train until September with the UK squad. This means they’ll be entered into UK competitions and attend training camps over the next few month. Their ultimate goal will to be selected for the GB team which will  go on to compete in The Worlds in California, which take place in October.

Favourite way to spend a weekend

Waking up early for a surf with my brothers then home for pancakes. Hanging out with friends at the beach followed by a barbecue and an evening surf at secrets.

I love paddle boarding around Secrets reef at low tide and skate boarding with friends. I love being outdoors, especially when the suns out, so anything involving that would be a great way to spend a weekend!
