Schauntay and Immy are a couple of 13-year-old surfer girls from Terrigal. They were finishing off some hot chips in the sunshine before heading back out for another surf. They’d already been out and surfing the point off The Haven.

The waves were solid, and I was honestly surprised to see the girls jumping off the rocks and back into the lineup after I took these photos. 

Both girls happily agreed to be included in the project and to have a couple of photos taken. While setting up, I asked, “What’s something you’d like to see, do, achieve or try as you grow up?”

They looked at each other, shrugged, laughed and said emphatically, “We don’t know, we don’t think about that stuff!”

Ok, I countered, “What about a holiday or surf spot?”

“Oh, ok” they replied, “Mentawai, we’d love to surf there, just put that.”

NOTE: The Mentawai Islands are a chain of about seventy islands approximately 150 kilometres off the western coast of Sumatra in Indonesia.
