Surf Like a Girl Pro Interview: Frankie Seely

Frankie 1Francesca “Frankie” Seely is a stellar surfer from Malibu, California. She is consistently earning first place trophies for both longboarding and short boarding. She recently took first place in the WSA West Coast Championship as well as the NSSA (National Scholastic Surfing Association). It is no wonder that Frankie holds sponsorship from Billabong, Becker, and others.  She is currently starring on  Awesomeness TV’s new web-series “Surfers,” which follows the lives of a group of Malibu teens as they navigate through relationships, plan for the future, and catch some perfect California waves. This Malibu High School senior has her sights set on college and going pro.

Best place I’ve surfed:  El Salvador is my favorite place because of the perfect right hand point breaks with only a hand full of people out. The waves are usually overhead and the water is a warm beautiful blue.  The people are so great there!

Last book I read: “Siddhartha” by Hermann Hesse

Favorite TV show: “Chopped” and “American Horror Story”

Theme song: “Burning Down the House” by Talking Heads

What I love to eat: Sushi and fruit

Hero: Nelson Mandela

Worst experience in the water: Getting caught inside and held under at Tunnels

I’m most proud of: Doing well in school!

What I do when I’m not surfing: Yoga, painting, singing, and cooking

Pet peeve:  When my leash drags in the sand

The perfect date: Picnic on the beach and a sunset surf

What I want to be when I grow up: Taller

Pets: Helga, my Rottie

Why I surf: I love it! Nothing feels better than hitting the lip or getting a perfect 10.    

What I’ve done to make the world a better/more environmentally friendly place: I started the Malibu High School Surfrider Chapter.

Something else fun about you: I’m a huge fan of horror movies.

Words to live by:  “Well behaved women rarely make history.” And: “Live your dreams or someone will hire you to build theirs.”

What does it mean for you to “Surf Like a Girl?” Throwing buckets, surfing with power, speed, and flow.

We also asked Frankie what she brings for an everyday surf session.

The Surfrider Foundation Turns 30


Thirty years ago, a group of surfers from Malibu, California, took action to fight the environmental health risks associated with escalating coastal development.  Since its inception in 1984, the Surfrider Foundation has evolved into one of the largest nonprofit grassroots organizations dedicated to  protecting and enjoying the world’s oceans, waves, and beaches.

To celebrate, they have launched the organization’s first-ever timeline and an opportunity for the public to submit a design for their 2015 membership tee.
