My name is BriannaCope, I'm a professional surfer from the beautiful island of Kauai! I was born and raised on the South Shore of Kauai. Growing up near the ocean, I fell in love with its beauty and power. I started surfing at the age of 4. My older sister Gabrielle and my dadtaught me how to surf on a longboard. They would push me into waves, and from that day on I was hooked. I love how free and alive I feel in the ocean. It is such an indescribable feeling to be able to ride a wave, always thinking how special it is that youcan only ride that wave once, you will never get the same wave again!
I started competingat the age of 10, winning my first surf competition when I was 11 years old and from that moment I knew I wanted to be a professional surfer. I have been competing ever since. I am currently competing on the World Surf League qualifying series, traveling acrossthe globe for competitions! My ultimate goal is to be on the world tour. I have always been a firm believer of “where there is a will there is a way”. In 2018 I came out with a documentary called “ Surfing to Cope” which is now on iTunes.
