“I’m grateful to be a part of the surfing lifestyle. I get to do what I love every day. I’m happy with the life that I have and the role surfing plays in it.” – Rosy Hodge
Born in South Africa and raised on the right-hand points of the Eastern Cape, Rosy Hodge still has fond memories of her motherland. She grew up in the town of East London, on the south-eastern Cape (about 4 hours up the coast from J-Bay). Her approach to surfing and life stuck with her throughout her career and with some hard work, she broke into the World Championship Tour and enjoyed what she’d describe as some success.
