SEAKISS 'DREAM BIG' AMBASSADOR
We first met Donna in 2011 in Dubai when she was just learning to surf and working at a Specialist Sports Medicine Centre as a massage therapist.
Fast forward to 2016 and Donna now works for the Hurley High Performance Centre on the North Coast of Australia as their only soft tissue therapist. Donna's dream job has come true working on Australia's elite professional & up and coming surfers.
Like her career, her surfing has also enjoyed rapid success. After only a short period her surfing competence and quiver (surfboard range) started to expand. She competed in her first competition in 2013 at the Wadi Adventure Wave Pool in The Volcom Surf and Skate Jam and came an impressive 3rd place, and in 2014 placed 2nd in the same competition. In 2014 she took the silver 2nd place podium in the Quicksilver Sunset Open.
The secret to Donna's success? Dream Big and work hard.
What we have witnessed over time with Donna is that everyday counts. She took the leap of faith and enquired into working as a Massage Therapist inside the medical tent for the US Open of Surf at Huntington Beach. Donna didn't give up until her services were accepted. She travelled to California to work with the World's Top Surfers and alongside the world's top medical support team. The result? She got asked to return again to for the Hurley Pro in Trestles, California, the following year. In between there were countless emails, skype calls & texts to secure her position and get her noticed. The ultimate pay off was when she was head hunted to work full-time with Australia's top surfers at the Hurley High Performance Centre. Her surfing took the same approach. It was tenacity and working every single day towards becoming a better surfer that saw her improve so quickly.
Donna is an inspiration for all to dream big, go hard and work little by little everyday to make that dream come true.
We are ecstatic Donna will be wearing Seakiss amongst Australia's brightest home grown female surf talent.

SEAKISS FITNESS AMBASSADOR
Tala is one of those athletes that just exudes natural talent. Coming from a running background, this epic chick has gone from conquering tube riding in the Canaries… not on a surf board, but on a kite-board! (you getting how intense that is?!).
Tala started kite-surfing 10 years ago, competing in PKRA (Professional Kitesurfer Riders Association) competitions in the Dominican Republic & France in 2010. She is also a Qualified IKO instructor & dive-master.
Since moving to Dubai in the last two years Tala has dropped the kite and migrated more towards surfing. Her talent from her competitive kite-boarding days means she is already mastering a level beyond her years
Tala studied at the University of Tampa and graduated with a double degree in Marine Science and Biology, then qualified as a Personal Trainer with ISSA, specialising in run coaching with a healthy running philosophy. She has qualifications in rre/post natal personal training and is qualified in TRX with the emphasis on functional training.
The main thing Tala loves and trains hard for is: Running. She has competed in Iron Man challenges, Marathons and competitively won a lot of races across her young athletic career. She also, just casually, speaks 5 languages!
Tala is our all rounder and can be seen wearing her Seakiss with clients during beach training, long marathon preparation runs, as well as swimming, SUP and surfing.
Tala proves that Seakiss goes beyond water wear and is her go to swimwear for both training and playing in!
