Dan Ross is a former elite level surfer from Yamba, Australia who, post-competitive career, has become a successful surf coach as well as big wave hellman. He is also a longtime environmental activist and Patagonia ambassador.
His girlfriend is Argentine actress and singer Mia Maestro, most famous for her role as Nadia in the TV series Alias, but also for her movie roles in the Twilight Saga, Frida and The Motorcycle Diaries.
“Dan is a successful surf coach and big wave hellman, while his girlfriend Mia is famous for starring in the Twilight saga”
The couple base themselves out of LA, although with Ross bombing it around the world chasing monster swells and coaching athletes like Sally Fitzgibbons, and Maestro attending red carpet premieres with R-Patz, they don’t get to hang out with each other as much as they would like.
“I like LA because it’s where a lot of people live that are very good at what they do, be it arts, film, business or whatever,” says Ross. “But I’m lucky that I get to travel, chase swells and also spend big chunks back in Yamba. And Mia has a passion for the ocean and outdoors, so it works well.”
We bet it does.
