We were so excited when Shantal reached out to us and over the past year and half we've been able to work together on a number of beautiful campaigns.

She has an impressive 62.2k followers on Instagram and is lucky enough to travel the world creating content for brands she loves. We've been charmed to meet this beautiful soul.

Early bird for sure

Where did your passion for surfing come from?
My father. He didn’t surf but he has always been a windsurfer. We’ve been travelling around the world since I was 2 looking for the best windsurfing conditions and even though it's a slightly different sport, the passion for the ocean and the sensation of peace that the sea gives you made me want to start surfing.
