Hi, I’m Nic Manshon. Creativity, for me, started back when I was drawing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and entering Mother’s Day competitions for KTV. I always loved art as a kid and did it as a subject throughout my schooling career.  If I were to be totally honest, I never saw a career in creativity in high school, even though art was my highest marked subject.  Hence, I went to study personal training straight after high school and thereafter worked for Virgin Active for a while.

Emma Smith

My name is Emma Smith and I am a Springbok surfer. I compete on the World Qualifying Series all around the world.

My sponsors are Billabong, Von Zipper, Just Water, Seventy One Percent Sunblock and Stance Socks.

Surfing is such an incredible lifestyle to be apart of. I've learnt and been exposed to so much more than just riding waves and competing. I love that I can surf to train, relax, socialise, alone time, think, get rid of energy and the list goes on. Other than surfing I am rather obsessed with food. Anyone who knows me knows I am constantly thinking of and planning my next meal. Or experimenting and making tasty recipes to show people healthy eating can be delicious. I have a passion for people, food, health and those who have been robbed of an education of health.
