Meet Diah Rahayu, Rip Curl’s One and Only Balinese Surfer Girl

The 22 year old from Seminyak, Bali, Indonesia, started surfing at the age of 12, due to her love for the Ocean, she fell in love with the sport.

“I love surfing, because my father is also a surfer, so it made me want to try for the first time. Ever since then, I became addicted to the sport and it’s now become my biggest passion and part of my daily life, living here in Bali”

Diah is Rip Curl’s one and only Balinese Surfer Girl, and has been part of the team for 8 years, since she was spotted at just 15 years old ripping at her home break of Seminyak.

The regular footer’s standard short-board is a 5’6 DHD and whenever there is a swell there’s no doubt that you will find her throwing huge Snaps and gouging Cutbacks, her Favourite Maneuvers, at her beloved surf spot – Keramas.

Although surfing is everything to Diah, Flat days don’t stop her, she’ll fill up her day with other activities she enjoys, such as, Pilates, Yoga and Cycling. On rainy days she’ll watch Movies.

Diah’s two favorite surfers are Malia Manuel and Carissa Moore.
