We first brought you news of Quincy Symonds, the flying squirrel, last year when she came to our attention as a super cute and super talented little grom making waves on the east coast of Australia. Since last writing about little Quincy, she has now had her own surfboard shaped for her and continues to head out at her home break, Snapper Rocks at every possible opportunity.
Quincy is one of those people who has a natural affinity with the ocean, she was born to be in the water and it seems that there is nothing that will ever stop her from doing that. With her sticker laden sponsored board, her boundless energy and infectious giggle Quincy is already being touted as a contender for the CT, and I have to be honest, I can see no reason why she won’t be one of the biggest names in female surfing in the future.
The beautiful thing about Quincy is that there are no pushy parents forcing her to be in the water, there is no big headedness about her and she is not surfing under any duress, she is there because she loves it and wants to be there and has the full backing and support of her family.
Enjoy the inspiring and heart warming clip of the Flying Squirrel below and let us know what you think of her incredible talent and undying passion for the sport and the ocean.
