My name is Brittani Nicholl and I have grown up on the Tweed Coast of Australia; where I took to the water surfing at 12 years of age.
I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease at 7 years of age and in 2011 I became a National ambassador for Crohn's & Colitis Australia.
In 2011 I also created history by winning my 3rd consecutive NSW Open Women’s State Title; where I later went on to win my first Australian Title.
Now in 2013 I've recently finished this year's season with a World Ranking of 24.
I am now preparing for a big year in 2014 with my first surfing event of the year being a 1 star in Bells Beach during the first week of January.
