We are so excited to introduce the latest SAMBAZON surf ambassador, Sawyer Lindblad. Sawyer is from San Clemente, CA, and grew up surfing world-class waves in her backyard. This prodigious talent joined the professional scene at the age of 14 and clinched a win in her first World Surf League event.
Fast forward to her 18, Sawyer holds an amazing record for her young age. As the youngest winner of the Super Girl Surf Pro in 2022, she went on to win the US Open of Surfing in 2023, proving she's a force to be reckoned with in the world of pro surfing.
We couldn't be more thrilled that Sawyer secured her spot in the 2024 World Championship Tour! We are proud of all that she has accomplished so far in her journey as an athlete, and honored to have her as a member of the SAMBAZON Family. The SAMBAZON team will be sure to tune into the world tour surf contests to see Sawyer doing her thing, and we hope that you do too!
