If Stephanie Gilmore is not Queen of the Beach, then who is in the world of surfing? And no, we’re not using ‘beautiful’ in the superficial, strictly physical sense. Although Steph is damn cute.
Stephanie Gilmore is the world’s most beautiful surfer because every inch of her being sings of happiness, stoke, and gratitude. It just so happens that those emotions are embedded in the body of an elite athlete.
