About me & my work:

I'm a 7 Times world surfing champion and the only professional surfer in history, male or female, to claim six consecutive world titles. I am a record breaker and a history maker. My ascent to becoming a world champion taught me valuable life lessons and most importantly, required me to be a story teller in order to gain recognition and support. I am grateful for my challenges, surrounded by honesty barometers and refuse to give oxygen to dream thieves. I now spend my time sharing my stories and life lessons on stages around the world about what it takes to get to the top and stay there. I truly understand how to sustain motivation and maintain a positive successful mindset. I see all challenges as opportunities and am focussed on finding solutions. My purpose is to live authentically and show others how to do the same by learning to value themselves, invest in themselves and live an inspired fulfilling life. I'm like a fuel additive- just add a dash and double your performance. I love to help people uncover their unconscious self imposed limiting beliefs.

I have also committed myself to making it easier for young women to achieve their goals by establishing the Layne Beachley Aim For The Stars Foundation. Celebrating achievement and supporting the journey of Australia's young women, the foundation provides financial and moral support to encourage them to dare to dream, pursue their passion and aspire to achieve in all endeavours including academia, business, arts and sport.
