About 15 years ago, among the scorching and soft beaches of Hawaii, the future “starfish” of surfing was born.
A rider who, with the passage of time, at only 15 years of age, would begin to shine among the best surfers in the world.
Bettylou Sakura Johnson, is among the smallest Roxy rider of the team. Small at the registry office, but unsurpassed in the waves. An athlete, with an elegant, clean but also rebellious style! And now we explain why …
In 2021 Bettylou decided to participate in the Maui Pro – the most prestigious women’s surfing championship in the world. Probably, for some, the very thought of clashing table at table with athletes of a certain level, would make their legs tremble. But for Sakura, whose heart is pounding for the competition, this challenge had to be accepted. The result? A great success brought home!
Some might blame the seemingly risky choice of Roxy rider; but, the athlete already had all the credentials to participate in the great challenge. In 2020, in fact, he obtained the double first place at Papara Pro Junior Tahiti and al Papara Pro Open Tahiti, in addition to also winning the Queen in Me.
What to say? In the waves there is a new rider to fear!
