Jen Smith can attribute her fun, laid-back style and commitment to surfing to her upbringing. She was inspired by her father, a San Diegan surf fixture and skateboard shop owner. Jen grew up biking to the La Jolla reefs after school, and spent all of her free time surfing (and working at her dad’s skate shop).
By ten, she’d entered her first surf contest and made the final. “I was stoked and hungry for more,” she recalls. She competed in as many events as she could and found quick success, becoming the World Longboard Champ in 2007 and 2009.
Still, Jen finds just as much fulfillment in freesurfing. “I try to find a balance between competing and staying happy, enjoying the everyday things in life. I’m a simple person and I appreciate everything,” she says. “I have a great lifestyle. I can’t even count all the countries I’ve been to on one hand. As a surfer, you’re always looking for new moments, new waves and new spots. In that respect, I feel pretty good.”
