Vans Europe Surf Team rider, Pauline Ado is on fire! After falling off tour in 2014, she was determined to come back stronger than ever— and that she did. Among tons of other accomplishments, she took home gold at the 2017 ISA World Surfing Games on her home turf in Biarritz, France. We talked with Pauline to find out how she got into surfing, and what makes this mademoiselle the Kick-Ass chick she is!
There’s something about Luki’s photos that standout amongst the thousands of other surf photographers, and for us it’s the way she captures tranquil moments in the ocean with a modernized retro vibe that gives us all the nostalgic feels. We’ve spent hours scrolling through her Instagram feed getting lost in the serene colors and gorgeous light she snaps, and just had to learn more about her. We’re chatting with Luki about how she inherited her love for the ocean, and what her dream shoot would be (hint hint, this one includes time travel!).
