Sophie Hellyer

Rise Fierce // Women's retreat


Sophie is a surfer, environmentalist, producer & writer living on the Atlantic coast of Ireland. Previously an English and British Champion surfer, with over 16 years of surfing experience, Sophie feels more at home in the ocean than on land.



With an honours degree in Marketing and a deep connection to the ocean, Sophie’s passion to create positive social change has led her to take a proactive approach in protecting our oceans. Sophie uses sport not only to create greater environmental awareness, but to empower women and reshape consumer behaviour. Sophie advocates living an ethical lifestyle, choosing to stay on the fringes, both living and travelling remotely.
