Holly Beck began surfing at the age of 15 and never looked back. With an NSSA title under her belt and years of traveling on the WQS as one of the top surfers in the world, Holly has hung up the contest jersey for a more simple and purposeful life. Setting up shop in Central America on a remote piece of land just steps from perfect waves, she has begun to carve out her own ideal lifestyle, running surf and yoga retreats, empowering women to take a little adventure and step out of the mundane. We caught up with Holly during our recent trip to El Salvador ( korduroy.tv/2011/surf-for-life-el-salvador ) to find out a bit more about how she decided to change her path and what she is working on creating down South.
