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.
