Aussie phenomenon Laura Enever racked up several major accolades before joining surfing’s elite division in 2011. In 2008, she was named Triple Crown Rookie of the Year and ISA World Junior Champion, and the following year she was crowned ASP World Junior Champion at her home break of North Narrabeen.
In 2010 she went on the rampage, winning her first ASP tour event, the 6-Star Billabong Women’s Azores Islands Pro, and picking up numerous other top results to finish at number two in the ASP Women’s World Rankings. She is now competing in her third year on the World Tour, after a tenth-placed finish in her rookie year, and an eighth-placed finish in 2012, and currently stands in tenth place in the overall standings after a series of consistent performances.
Laura was born on 14th November 1991. Hailing from one of the world’s premier lefthand sand breaks on Sydney’s northern beaches, it is perhaps not surprising that she is a natural at surfing, but she was actually a dedicated gymnast until the age of nine. She went to Hawai’i for the first time in 2004 as a special guest at Lisa Andersen's elite surf training camp Champ Camp, and she has trained in Hawaii every year since.
A regular-footer with prodigious talent, she describes her style in three words - “bold, edgy and fun.” Those three words sum up her character too - she certainly looks to be on the brink of huge things in and out of the water.
