Think of a place that is known for the quality of its surfing, and a few destinations may spring to mind. Australia, certainly, with its long sandy shoreline and near-obsessive love for the sport that plays out on beaches from Brisbane to Perth. The glorious coastline of California. Even our own Cornwall, with its busy boarding scene.

Look at her – taking off so far down the point, carving straight over the duckdiving guys, who are probably thinking they’d do anything to keep watching. She’s irresistible. And if this clip is any indication, so is her new movie – Stephanie in the Water.
She is one of the most famous names in surfing, a global celebrity with reach beyond our salty circle.

It was a gruesome twist of fate for the then 13-year-old that cost the Kauian her left arm, but inspired her to go on and become the incredible character the world knows today.
As part of their annual Body Issue, ESPN The Magazine featured photos of one very nude Coco Ho surfing in Hawaii. Since 2009, the magazine has been running tastefully shot nudes of some of the world’s most esteemed athletes, including Olympians, football players, and soccer stars.
