Sophie Hellyer is a surfer and writer who divides her time between the Atlantic coast of Ireland, Devon and London. She is also a cold water swimmer, environmentalist, feminist, producer, model and public speaker. Previously an English and British Champion surfer, Sophie feels more at home in the water than on land.
Sophie is passionate about creating positive social change: this can be seen in her proactive approach towards protecting our oceans and empowering women. She is a vocal advocate of green politics and is determined to lead a much-needed overhaul to the visual narrative of surfing, fostering a more healthy, diverse and inclusive sporting culture.
With an honours degree in marketing, a decade of experience in the creative industries and a committed social media following, Sophie has previously worked with companies such as Tommy Hilfiger, Adidas and Toyota. She is now looking to collaborate with like-minded brands that share her passion for equality, ethics and sustainability.
