When she is not surfing or writing for FLKLR, she teaches yoga.
She brings a bizarre combination of sexually explicit writing and yogic calm to the FLKLR crew.

Name: Elly Whittaker
Date of birth: November 3, 1988
Home break: I have adopted Croyde Bay as a home break.

Flklr board of choice: The ONO because it looks like trouble and great fun, like all the best things.Instagram: @swell.yoga


Elly is usually found exploring remote British breaks in her little blue van. She likes dancing and surfing and doesn’t like those fiddly coffee makers where you have to screw the lid on.

What's your FLKLR?

When I lived in London, I once bunked off work and drove an eight-hour round trip for a few hours in the surf – that was probably when I decided to make surfing a bigger part of my life. Eventually I quit my job in London and now I live much closer to the waves.

I guess my FLKLR is bloody-mindedness because I have spent so much time eating sh*t in cold British beach breaks.

Who's style do you admire the most?

I have spent some time in South Africa over the last couple of years and there are a lot of cool women with great style in Jeffrey’s Bay. One woman takes her kids surfing at Supertubes and absolutely shreds.

What inspires you?

Knowing that one day I won’t be around to enjoy all this stuff.

No sunscreen or Underwear?

No underwear. Have you seen what happens to Brits in the sun?!
