Born Philippines as Roberta. Learned to surf at “the Park” in Real, Quezon. Spent every vacation she could at Baler in Bali. Moved to Bali while in high school, christened “Bali” Bobbi on the beaches of Siargao Island by fellow surfer dudes in awe of her Rad, Rippin’ Style’n Moves! “Hossegor” Hank convinced her there were many more oceans to conquer. Now lives in Cocoa Beach hanging with “Sumatra” Sam and his grommets. Makes sure she gets to Jeffreys Bay to surf’ J-Bay Barrels off South Africa at least once every year.
