Marina was born and raised in Fuerteventura, one of the beautiful Canary Islands. No wonder she always felt connected to the sea, growing up surrounded by it. Early on she made the ocean her second home. Surfing, bodyboarding, diving, all day, every day. She spent so much time in the water, that it became the only place, where she could fully feel herself and her problems seemed to disappear out there in the waves.
In 2015 she left the ocean behind, to continue her sport science studies on the mainland of Spain. It was in Madrid, where she discovered her passion for rapid surfing while working at Citywave Madrid. No matter where she is, she will always find ways to get back in the water. As long as she is in contact with it, she’ll be happy.
