Freshman Emmy Merrill is a PLNU student to watch. As a young, breakout, competitive and championship surfer, she’s on fire.

From February 19-25, 2012, Emmy was in Peru where she competed in the ISA Stand Up Paddle and Paddleboard Championship against women of different ages from many different countries. She won first place.

She went into the competition as an 18-year-old champion surfer who has won highly competitive events, as well as national titles for her high school surf team in San Clemente. She’s what Surfline.com calls “the quintessential water-woman,” and we were able to get an interview with her about her surfing career and championship win at ISA.
