Osprey is proud to welcome aboard Tehillah McGuinness into our team riders roster! An all-round lover of life, Tee will be suiting up in Osprey wetsuits as she pursues her passion for waves, fitness and well-being.

Growing up in South Africa Tee has surfing in her blood, now based in Fuerteventura she divides her time charging waves professionally, being a personal trainer to clients and celebrities alike, as well as modelling! Her exploits in both surfing and fitness gave her the idea to combine the two, in what has become her new venture Ohana Fitness & Surf.

Tehillah will be journeying to the UK in 2014 to promote her Girls Surf & Fitness weekend programme, which will be run through various surf schools, and will be an opportunity for women of all ages to take up an interest in the sport or improve on their abilities if they are already acquainted with surfing. Participants can also learn about the importance of keeping active through surfing as well as discovering other related pursuits to help them on their way to a healthier lifestyle. Outlining her plan for her 2014 fitness weekends in an article by the Huffington Post, Tehillah commented:

"I have had the pleasure of teaching so many girls how to surf and I have seen so many amazing achievements, not only in the sport, but in their confidence and personal lives. I love the fact that at the beginning of some of these weekends you have a group of girls, who have never met each other before, are a bit nervous and reserved and by the end of the two days are laughing with and at each other, catching waves together and all the girls are cheering each other on! I love the power of surfing and that I have the opportunity to be a part of that.”

With so much going on in her life we are absolutely thrilled to have Tee on board with us, and we can’t wait to see the results of all her hard work as she helps others get to experience both the physical and mental positives that surfing creates. Tee comments:

"I feel so happy to join the team and to have the opportunity to be a part of such a fantastic brand."

We will of course keep you up to date on all her endeavours right here. Read Tehillah's profile, follow Tehillah on Twitter or read her blog.
