Whether it’s surfing, diving, or sailing, Lucy Te Moananui enjoys being in the sea. That being surfing at her local in Kaikoura, sailing her beloved Nerissa K in the Solo Trans-Tasman Race (and being the only female skipper to enter) or stand up paddle boarding at a pumping Cloudbreak. Lucy throws everything she has into her water activities, and is a fine representative of a Seventhwave Team Rider.
Lucy has lived in Christchurch, Nelson, and now Kaikoura, and met her husband and fellow competitive surfer Al through mutual friends on the beach. She's previously held national titles for surfing and has taught hundreds of students how to dive.
At Kaikoura High School she teaches "a bit of everything" including te reo Māori and art.
