Emilia Perry


I was born and raised in Western Australia where I competed as a professional bodyboarder. Most people don’t realize that the ocean waters off the coast of Western Australia are as equally treacherous and formidable as the ocean waters off the coast of the Hawaiian Islands. This is where my foundation began. When I was 18 years old, I came to Hawaii for a competition and met Tamayo while bodyboarding out at Pipeline.

A few years later, I picked up a surfboard, we got married and there was no turning back. As Tamayo fined tuned my skills, I became good enough to land a paid contract deal with one of the major brands in surf clothing. Ever since, I’ve been competing at Pipeline in any and every contest that has a women’s division available; whether it’s surfing, longboarding, bodyboarding or bodysurfing. The vast amounts of ocean knowledge that Tamayo has ingrained in me over the years is priceless. The knowledge and wisdom I have gained over the years has given me a tremendous amount of confidence in any body of water any where in the world. This knowledge has also helped me a great deal in competition, allowing me to place in the semi-finals of every surfing discipline. Whilst being a professional surfer, I have also had the privlage of working as a stunt-women in such feature films as ‘Battleship’, ‘Soul Surfer’, the t.v. series ‘Lost’ and most recently ‘Hawaii Five-0’.
