Hi ... My Name is Sienna!
I always had this dream to become a ROXY girl...
One day I wrote down my dream to be a ROXY girl and then I started doing everything I could to improve my surfing performance. Hayden would call that ‘focus’ and believe me, there is work and effort involved with any dream. Luckily my family backed me 100%, so I am very blessed. Thank you Mum, Dad & Zane.
The Beauty of Surfing
There is something uniquely special about being on a beautiful beach and surfing with waves. Nothing compares to the way I feel when I surf – I am truly in love with surfing. It’s such a beautiful sport that connects you with nature, keeps you in great shape, and allows you to meet amazing people all around the world. Having a dream involved around what I love to do has been very powerful to consistently push my limits.
Surfing Fitness is Super Important
Surfing is physically and mentally demanding, especially surfing more powerful waves in crowded oceans. I am lucky that I can surf A LOT, yet specific surfing exercises help keep my body stronger, flexible and balanced for surfing. In Bali I did some Yoga with Hayden – it was pretty intense. He reminded me though, that alignment is key to power development and fluidity of movement for life; especially for any athlete. He reminds all surfers that staying, ‘younger for longer’ and ‘injury prevention’ (especially as you age) are massive benefits of surfing fitness training.

Paddling Fitness & Surfing Stronger
Surfing is a dynamic sport and the ocean is an ever changing median. You never know what surfing is going to throw at you. Being surf fit allows you to be in the right place at the right time to catch the best waves.
When you started out, why was paddling fitness important?
“Paddling fitness is vital because you need to be a strong paddler to get out the back and to be able to catch waves. It’s also important to be able to get out of the way of other surfers!”
Starting out – was it easy?
Surfing Challenges & Role Models
“The most challenging thing for me would be making myself surf in all types of conditions, whether it be surfing over sharp shallow reefs, dealing with the unbelievable crowds at snapper, but most of all being a girl surfer; is getting waves in a crowded line up and having the respect of all the boys.”

Surfing is an amazing sport, the whole lifestyle is pretty incredible. I’m so lucky to be able to travel at such a young age and surf world class waves. In Bali earlier this year I surfed with my brother Zane, Scott James and Hayden – that was a great experience. Surfing delivers so much more to my life and as long as I have it with me I will be one happy girl!. It’s like Hayden say’s, surfing is our best medicine.
