Eight Time World Champion Surfer & Champion Motivator
Layne Beachley AO is widely regarded as the most successful female surfer in history. She is the only surfer, male or female, to claim six consecutive world titles (1998-2003). Layne then went on to win a 7th world title in 2006 before retiring from the ASP World Tour two years later. In September 2018, more than a decade after winning her record breaking seventh world surfing crown, Layne returned to the water to win the inaugural World Surf League, Masters World Championship. Layne was appointed Chair of Surfing Australia in 2015 and is the first former female World Champion, in any sport, to take on this role at a National Sporting Organisation. This has positioned Layne at the forefront of the movement that will see surfing make its Olympic debut at the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.
