Lilly von Treuenfels isn’t your average 18-year-old girl. She’s already traveled more in those 18 years than most people will in a lifetime. Born in South Africa, Lilly moved to Germany when she was young. Then, in 2010, when she was 11, she went to Barbados with her family and fell head over heels in love with surfing. Now, she surfs on the German Junior Surfing team and has competed in the ISA Junior World Games since 2011.
After living in Barbados, France, and Costa Rica–just to name a few–she’s settled in Lanzarote, in the Canary Islands. Lanzarote, if you aren’t in the know, is a little slice of heaven with heavy gems like this and beautiful slabs like this one. The video you’re about to watch (or are probably already watching) was filmed on a trip to the Maldives.
