Teen longboard champ expands Surf Lakes ambassadors list
Surf Lakes is growing their ambassador roster to include Queensland Under 18 Longboard Champion, Luca Doble
“Luca is a great addition to our ambassador team because not only does she represent a younger generation, but her grace and style on a longboard is an inspiration to behold,” said Surf Lakes in a statement. “In line with our motto ‘Everybody Gets A Break’ she is perfect to showcase the potential of Surf Lakes ability to create excellent waves for all surf craft. With this in mind we can easily demonstrate the huge broader market appeal for potential licensees.
Reports state that 15-year-old Luca was over the moon when Surf Lakes contacted her about her appointment and was truly emotional when spoken to about the possibilities ahead. Surf Lakes said her presence has already been noted as visitors to the R&D facility have been enamoured with the ease in which she glides while walking to the nose.
Growing up in the small, coastal town of Qld’s Agnes Water, Luca had a love of the ocean from an early age. Idolising her older brother, Luca began surfing with him at 5. By 6, she was competing in the laid-back local board riders club, Tide n Turn and showed enormous promise on the shortboard. By the time she was 12, Luca discovered and fell in love with the longboard. Luca began competing in local and Sunshine Coast competitions and was proving herself to be a worthy competitor. In 2018 she won Most Improved at the Agnes Water Festival of Surfing and just kept going from there.
