CITIZENS INTERVIEW  —

M.Harmony.lukiOkeefe.3 Who is @shredsista

Makala Harmony Smith from Dana Point CA 
I’ve been surfing for as long as I can remember. 
I got my first surfboard at age five, it was a
Bruce Jones 6’0 single fin. 

My home break is Doheny and San O.
I love the town that I’m from there’s so much surf culture. 
I notice it the more I travel. It makes me appreciate how lucky I am to live where I do.  
I love my friends and the life that I live!

What does wearing Seea mean to you? 

Seea babes are a family of chicas!
When we are all together it’s hectic in the best way, it’s awesome. So many laughs and it’s always the best time. 

Seea is all I wear besides my @jonesea wetsuits. 
Because they’re  unique, stylish, comfortable and convenient. Some times you get double takes.
(What’s that girl wearing?)

But I love sharing the stoke with women (and sometimes men) in the water.
That’s what we do when we wear it,
Promote it, Spread the Love.
M.Harmony.lukiOkeefe.7What are you so excited to do whilst in Aussie ? 

Well everyday is a new adventure here….
I do solo trips exploring to find waves.

I’m excited to see where my adventures take me, excited to meet more awesome people and very excited to surf more waves with no crowds!

Any Aussie myths you’ve heard or been warned about?

Hahahahahahahha ‘Drop Bears’
Basically just a bunch of made up stuff, but some friends here convinced us there were Koala like Mammals that drop from the trees onto people (tourist)!

We hope you enjoy the rest of your Aussie adventures Makala.
And we’re glad you’ve been forewarned about ‘drop bears’
cause that happens here all the time!
