Born in Irun on the border between France and Spain and based in San Sebastian, Iara grew up on a board and has skated, snowboarded and surfed from the time she could walk. She had her first taste of competitive surfing with the Hendaye Surf Club and quickly discovered she had both the talent and drive to take it much further. She now spends a lot of time training in Hossegor and this summer has had her first tilt on the Pro Junior Tour in Europe. It’s early days but its clear Iara has a huge future in the sport.
