You could say that six-time world surfing champion, Stephanie Gilmore, 27, knows a thing or two about pursuing her passion.
Born and raised in northern NSW, Stephanie has dominated the women’s surf scene since entering in 2007. Stephanie has also been awarded both the Laureus World Sports Award in 2010 – considered the most prestigious award in action sports worldwide – and the ESPN ESPY for Best Female Action Sports Athlete in 2011 and 2013.
Apart from riding the waves, Stephanie enjoys travelling the globe, exploring new cities and beaches, photographing her adventures, playing her many guitars and living a gypsy lifestyle.
As the new face of YoPRO, a high protein, low fat yogurt with zero added sugar, Steph continues to spread her personal message about pushing yourself to the limit in order to achieve your goals.
“For me, it’s not just about winning titles. Nor is it all hard work and sacrifice. It’s just about loving what I do and enjoying the journey,” Gilmore says.
Steph also makes a point to share that after winning six world championships, she still wakes up each day feeling grateful, inspired and ready to ride the next wave.
Developed by YoPRO, ‘Chasing Passion’ captures Steph in her element surfing the infamous Lakey Peak wave in Sumbawa, Indonesia.
Steph particularly wanted to take on this notorious wave in this campaign as it had always been a demon of hers — and alas, we witness her conquering it.
The video also showcases how YoPRO can provide you the energy and fuel you need to pursue your passion. YoPRO is a super delicious and healthy snack that we personally love here at Amodrn HQ. Extremely high in protein (that is, containing more than 10g per serve), YoPRO comes in a variety of natural flavours (although we’re team vanilla all the way!) and has a thick, fluffy texture that likens it to a decadent dessert rather than a tub of yoghurt.
