Holly Beck

Does the summer weather getting you psyched about surfing? It's never too late to start. BHolly Beck - the surfer babe from Palos Verdes, California only started riding waves when she was 15. She's now considered one of the best female surfers around.

Holly Beck - Surf Story

Holly Beck first picked up a surfboard in 1995 while she was on a family vacation in Waikiki, Hawaii. Her mom wasn't too impressed because she thought surfing was dangerous, but Holly loved the sport and she began practicing when she returned to California. Holly Beck borrowed an old board from her uncle and started riding waves every day at 4 am at a beach near her house. She later joined her high school surf team and in her first year won the Bay League Championship. In 1996, Holly Beck began surfing in the National Scholastic Surfing Association and won titles in the open and explorers division. Her success with the NSSA gave Holly some big time exposure and got her sponsored by the world's biggest surfboard maker - Rusty Surfboards.

Holly Beck - Boardin' Babe

The only thing better than a girl that's a great surfer is a hot girl that's a great surfer. Holly Beck's combo of major babeness and serious boardness has allowed her to start a very successful modelling career. She's now done model/surf shoots in Mexico, Hawaii, and California and has been featured in Teen People and Rolling Stone. In 2003, Holly Beck starred in the WB show, Boarding House: North Shore, a reality TV show about a group of surfers living together and competing in the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing.

Holly Beck - Studious Surfer

Along with surfing, Holly Beck is also working hard at UCLA where she studies something called management science. Holly Beck hopes to keep modelling and begin a career in television journalism. Holly even finds time to pass her surfing skills on to her ten year-old sister who has already started hitting the waves. Holly Beck thinks her sister could become an even better surfer than she is one day.

Boys CAN cheerlead, but chances are they will be made fun of(not by me). Cheerleaders do A LOT of physical cheers and stunts, and we use ourselves instead of gear. A lot and most people underestimate cheerleaders for just some girls with poms and uniforms going "go team! yay!" because they have seen that in movies and tv. look up some cheer comp videos and still only some people with change their view of cheerleaders as girls on the sidelines doing uncreative cheers and stupid words to match. I hope this helped you understand a little bit more about cheerleading and cheerleaders. Peace Out!
