She's been dreaming of surfing and living by the oceanside since she was a child. Pursuing her passion enthusiastically and tirelessly, Polina flew to Portugal at the age of 19 for the very first time. She instantly felt that this place is where she belongs. When Polina touched the ocean and got on a surfboard, her life changed 180 degrees at that very moment. This inspired her to organize surf retreats to different countries and meet like-minded people along the way.
