Patagonia Surfing Ambassador Belinda Baggs
A seeker of wild places and warm blue water, Belinda’s heart has always been set on the ocean. A passionate all-around surfer, bodysurfer and paddleboarder, she’s perhaps best known for her graceful and technically accomplished longboard style. Bindy has a wandering spirit, but her roots are on Australia’s Sunshine Coast. “Time in the ocean,” she says, “is like returning home.” She recently settled down in her home town of Newcastle and added the role of mom to her resume.
