María started surfing when she was 12. Since her first surf lesson she was in love with this beautiful sport, that it’s become a lifestyle for her. She lives in Santander, a little city of the north of Spain, whose weather is not the best to practice surf because the winter is cold and long… It’s because of this that she would like to travel all the time!

This year she has started her university studies; “Sciences of Physical Activity and Sport”. When she is done she wants to be a professional trainer or a physical education teacher. She loves teaching kids, and now she works on a surf school, so she can make her own money for travel.

Her other hobbies are going out with her friends, playing different sports, longboarding… and live the life!
