What others are saying:

"Over the years, Michele Eray has established herself in a league of her own when it comes to both downwind surfing and coaching.

She has both been to the Olympics and coached Maggie Hogan who just qualified for RIO. This on top of her second to none surfing ability puts her in the unique spot of possibly being the most qualified Surfski coach on the planet."
