Traveler Co-Founder, Head Instructor
With thousands of hours of water time logged and hundreds of surfers taught, Julie has developed a calm demeanor and a deep passion for surfing, its lifestyle, and history.
Julie has lived a life dedicated to the waves since she was 8 years old. She was a professional surfer on the world longboard circuit, where she was ranked 5th in 2007-2009. While competing, she taught surfing in Mainland Mexico for many years, designed a women's specific line of surfboards, and later became Director of the California Surf Museum in Oceanside. She now owns and operates Traveler Surf Club in Pacifica and Malibu, but loves staying close to what she loves through teaching surf lessons and surf coaching.
Whether you're a beginner or an intermediate surfer, Julie loves helping people pick up the skills and the water knowledge that can otherwise take years to learn.

“It’s been 3 years since I had my twins and I was pretty nervous about getting in the water after such a long while. I’m definitely a beginner :) Julie was fantastic! She’s calm, professional, relaxed, supportive and an all round great instructor. I had a blast! If you want friendly, encouraging instruction from an expert then she’s your gal!” — Laura Vollset, Santa Cruz
“I took my first lesson with Julie over Labor Day weekend. I am a beginner and Julie immediately put me at ease and I learned so much in our first two hours together. She gave me hands-on tips that enabled me to pop-up our first time on the water together. I have since taken a few lessons with Julie and I cannot say enough about her coaching style and grace in the water. I bought my first-ever surfboard from her this fall and cannot wait to take it out. I highly recommend Julie to anyone looking to improve their skills. You’ll learn etiquette along the way. ” — Jill Callan, San Francisco
