Living out of a suitcase for the last three years, Rebecca Woods has had her flannelette PJs as security, making her feel closer to home. Growing up as the youngest of four sisters, Bec was in touch with her competitive side from a very early age. Even her first surfing experience uncovered her determination, seeing her to her feet on a foamie after watching older sister get to her knees on an earlier wave. But it wasn’t all perfection at that point, as Bec experienced her first dump sparking a teary run to mum on the beach and a return to surfing a few years later.
