After growing up between the tropical isles of Reunion and New Caledonia, Victoria Vergara entered the world of the model/ surfer aged just 14.
Since then she’s developed a style and approach in the water that has seen her become one of the most appreciated female longboarders in the world.
In this brand new short, shot and cut by the talented Morgan Maassen, we’re offered a little more of a window into her life.
“Almost a decade ago, I met Victoria Vergara on a small volcanic landmass deep in the Indian Ocean, known as Reunion Island,” says Morgan. “
“Now famous for its shark-infested waters, the incredibly rugged french island is a far-fetched idea from where you’d think this longboarder and model would hail from. Now, after many fun adventures traveling the world together with cameras and surfboards, it’s an honor to share this short film on this incredibly unique human being.”
