Who is Hayanna?
Hayanna is a half Brazilian half Japanese surfer, she was born and raised in Bali where she discovered her passion for surfing. She has been part of the 69slam team for years!
She started her first heat (quarter finals) slowly, she tried to find the right wave for a long time and in the last 3 minutes she caught 2 waves that pushed her into first position.
She found her rhythm in the semis, she got onto a good wave and got another high score to back it up.
Congrats Hayanna! Much deserved. We are super proud of you.
