Layne Beachley AO is widely regarded as the most successful female surfer in history. The only surfer, male or female, to claim six consecutive world titles (1998-2003). Layne then went on to win a 7th world title in 2006 before retiring from the ASP World Tour in 2008. On Australia Day 2015, Layne was awarded with an Officer of the Order of Australia for her distinguished service to the community through support for a wide range of charitable organisations, as a mentor for women in sport and as a world champion surfer. Layne is the current Chair of Surfing Australia, and ambassador for RU OK? Day, Planet Ark and The Laureus Sport For Good Foundation.
Layne is also the proud Founder and Director of her own charity, the Layne Beachley Foundation, Aim For The Stars, empowering and enabling young girls and women to transform their potential into reality across a broad range of pursuits including science, the arts, business and sport.
In September 2018, more than a decade after winning her record breaking seventh women’s world surfing crown, Layne returned to the water to win an 8th world title, becoming the first female winner of the WSL World Masters Championship with her victory in the Azores.
As one of Australia’s most trusted and respected brands, Layne now travels the world sharing her powerful story, inspiring and empowering people to live a more fulfilled life. Her exploits are astounding, her attitude unwavering and her achievements inspirational.
