WB Surf Camp Surfer of the Week for 1/9/12- Maddy Lohmeier

Maddy came to WB Surf Camp from Cary, NC to learn how to surf. Little did she know how addicted she would get. She came to our first session of Teen Overnight Camp and then again halfway through the summer because she couldn’t get enough. That’s called being stoked! As you’ll find out, Maddy has big plans for her surfing career…first Board Building Camp, then Hawaii Teen Camp, then a World Title no doubt!

1. What drew you to WB Surf Camp? I have always wanted to learn how to surf for the longest of time, and when i found WB Surf Camp i knew this was a perfect chance to finally learn how. Now i just can’t stop going back.
