West Australian surfer Felicity Palmateer is the only Aussie to be invited to both Women’s Big Wave World Championships at Jaws, in Hawaii. And on both occasions, she had to overcome injury and face fears. Tackling the biggest waves in the world is never easy …

“I hope I can inspire others to face their own fears and overcome the obstacles they might be facing in their lives. I know by facing some of my own fears, I’ve become inspired to try harder. Fear is opportunity! Opportunity for growth.”

– Flick Palmateer
