Leila Hurst: Cold Water Journey

ZEAL Athlete and Professional Surfer Leila Hurst sheds light on her Cold Water Journey titled ‘Perception’. 

We caught up with Leila Hurst to see how the surf’s treating her on the West Coast of California. Here’s what she had to say about chasing waves and staying cool.

“When I moved to California, I fell in love with road trips to new places and kind of not know what the heck I was doing or where I was surfing. This adventure was extra special to me. This is why I named it “Perception”. My perception on life changes with every adventure I take - wether it’s in the ocean or on land. I encourage people to go out of their comfort zone and explore and feel uncomfortable in places they have never been. I found incredible beauty and a new appreciation for cold water, frozen toes and sharky surf spots!”
