Bio Surfer girls don't come much cuter or more talented than North Narrabeens 17 year old Laura Enever. Lauren grew up in the protective shadow of some of surfing's greats, such as Nathan Hedge, Chris Davidson, Damien Hardman, and Simon Anderson, and is already cutting the swathe through her competition, beating junior boys that are years older! And what is their reaction?“Aw, they don't say much they're pretty quiet,” she giggles, “But all of the older guys pay them out!”
Laura was a dedicated gymnast until the age of nine when she decided to give it up, or “retire” as she explains it, to surf fulltime.. The first time Laura went to Hawaii was in 2004 as a special guest at Lisa Andersen's elite surf training camp Champ Camp. She has now been to Hawaii every year since. Laura has so many accomplishments; 2008 alone she is the ISA Junior World Champion and the 2008 Triple Crown Rookie of the Year. Laura plans on continuing 2009 with the WQS as well as the WildCard Trilas for the prestigious Roxy Pro Australia in March.
When Laura is home, she trains with the likes of World Championship surfer Barton Lynch and his troupe of male World Championship tour aspirants. Clearly, her natural talent is already attracting esteemed company.
“I've already learned so much, “she says, “Just being around the girls like Lisa Andersen, Sofia Mulanovich and Megan Abubo and being able to see them surf in real life is so fun! Some of the best advice I have been given is when you are riding a wave you imagine you are listening to music, surfing to the beat, feeling the rhythm. It has helped me surf smoother and get into the flow.”
