Yolanda Hopkins Sequeira
"I'm from Faro, Portugal.
Since the first time I put my feet on a surfboard at 8 years old, I knew that was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life!
After a few years of competing locally, I decided to take it up to the nationals. A whole new world that I wasn't ready for until I met John Tranter from Pigdog Surf Camp who became my surf coach.
After a lot of work together over the last 2 years, I am now 2019's Portuguese National Surf Champion and on an international level, I have won the 2019's Boardmasters Roxy Open at Fistral"
