The daughter of living legend Tom Curren has forged quite a reputation in her own right. The talented surfer from Biarritz has established herself as a rising star in European surfing.
LeeAnn has been crowned both European Junior Champion and 2x ASP European Champion. After a successful year in 2009 on the WQS, she qualified as the youngest European ever for the WCT. Unfortunately an injury slowed her down when she came close to requalifying for the World Tour. Now, she's getting better and improving her surfing in order to requalify for next year.
LeeAnn also has a deep passion for music; she sings, plays the guitar and enjoys composing music of her own. LeeAnn founded her Surf and Hope Foundation after witnessing the hard life of the Brazilian favelas. She recently produced "Titan Kids," a film about the surfers and children of the favelas. LeeAnn's main focus is to provide the kids help and hope through surfing. LeeAnn really has it all to become an icon in women's surfing.
