Paige Hareb created history recently by becoming the first female Kiwi to qualify for the World Championship Tour. 2008 was an amazing year for Paige on both the Australiasian Pro Junior Series as well as the World Qualifying Series.
After entering two World Qualifying Series events in Australia and placing 5th and 1st, Paige made the decision to travel the world with the aim to furfill her dream to compete with surfing's elite on the World Championship Tour. That dream became a reality in Hawaii at the end of last year when she was told of the great news.
Paige grew up in Taranaki on New Zealand North Island, with the ocean at her front door steps and the mountains in her backyard. Paige was introduced to surfing at a young age by her father, Mike on one of his longboards. Surfing hasn't been the only sport that Paige grew up with, she played tennis, soccer, basketball, rugby and was also a member of the New Zealand academy for skiing.
At only 18 years of age, one thing is for sure with the determination, national pride and solid surfing talent Paige possesses, she is ready to make her mark in Women's Surfing.
