Get to know Reef's newest female ambassador Paige Maddison
Where are you from?
I grew up in Diddillibah - QLD, which is small farming suburb, half an hour inland from the surf.
Where's your home break?
Noosa Heads, QLD
How would you describe your style in and out of the water?
I don’t know… In the water is where I’m generally happiest, so I guess you could say I have an open minded, carefree style. Out of the water, I’d say quirky.
We hear you are studying fashion and merchandising... where does your fashion inspiration come from?
I finished my Fashion Design back in 2009 and am now studying Project Management. I would love to combine these two qualifications in the upcoming years.Fashion inspiration mainly comes from some of my closest friends. They may not know it but they are a huge part of my personal interpretation of combining styles. Whether it’s Vintage, American Indian or something elegant and chic.I can wake up one morning feeling like a tomboy, then elegantly the next.It’s good to be versatile and have a broad selection of garments to work with.
What will you be doing for Reef?
I will be joining the current Ambassadors, surfing, modeling and securing exposure in various print and social media outlets.
Any trips coming up?
A quick trip to Bali in February then hopefully head to California later on in the year.
Favorite spot in the world to surf/travel?
I’m yet to find it, as I haven’t traveled a whole lot. But I am looking forward to finding it very soon. In saying that, where I live is pretty ideal for the type of waves I like to surf so if I find an exact point break like Noosa minus the crowds, I would be very happy indeed.
