Stephanie Gilmore - Surfing, Strumming

You may know Stephanie Gilmore, the local Kingscliff girl, she's won the Women's ASP World Tour 5 times. She also rocked it in the 2011 ESPN Body Issue. ESPNW caught up with her and it starts simply enough.

The way surfer Stephanie Gilmore described a snapshot of her childhood, it almost sounded like a scene from the popular 1970s TV show "The Partridge Family." Odds are the 25-year-old from Kingscliff, Australia, wouldn't understand the pop-culture reference. Between jamming with her musical family, surfing with friends and playing a handful of other sports, Gilmore certainly didn't spend much time in front of the tube.

Yet ends oh so sweetly sweetly, because not only is this 25 year old a surfer- shes a musician.

What attracts so many surfers to music?
"It's cliché, I know," Gilmore said. "But without getting too deep here, I think that when you surf, you have to have a certain level of rhythm, timing and style."

Rock on Stephanie.
