Christine Simko is a new Surf Mei Mei contributor. She surfs, snowboards, hikes, and considers herself a TED Talk-obsessed-adventure-seeking-foodie-extraordinaire, who can often be overheard passionately voicing that she “can make that”.
Christine has a particular fondness for spending as many waking hours as possible outside. Whether it’s surfing local at Rockaway on the weekends, while pretending she’s surfing Playa Grande once again; begging her friends to accompany her on a Catskills camp trip in search of an abandoned plane crash site; or merely exploring the New York City streets in search of the coziest coffee shop to chill and read about more about surfing– Christine strives to leads a healthy, active, stoke-soaked lifestyle while striving to help others feel equally inspired along the way.
As the tough-girl, adrenaline-junkie that she is, it makes sense that Christine believes “everything you’ve ever wanted lies on the other side of fear”, an idea meaning complete awesomeness already lies within us and the only way to answer that call is to simply muster the courage to giddy-up and get out there.
