Five-time world champion surfer, Stephanie Gilmore, 25, was born and raised in New South Wales, Australia. Stephanie has dominated women's professional surfing since she entered the scene in 2007 - winning a world title as a rookie - an accomplishment no other surfer has achieved in the history of women's surfing. Beyond her five ASP world titles, Stephanie has 32 elite World Tour victories.

For her triumphs, Stephanie has also been awarded both the Laureus World Sports Award in 2010, considered the most prestigious award in action sports worldwide, and an ESPN ESPY for Female Action Sports Person of the Year award in 2011.

When not competing, Stephanie enjoys playing both acoustic and electric guitar. She loves traveling, exploring cities and beaches around the world, and fashion. Stephanie's philanthropic work includes a partnership with Australia's youth-focused Black Dog Foundation, through which she sponsors two children in Kenya and Ethiopia.
