The article outlines her 10 year adventure and highlights some topics that aren’t exactly the most important things to her, but regardless she is happy to have the exposure. Liz is such an inspiring human being and we believe that her name and story should be known far and wide! Since the article debuted, Liz posted this statement on social media platforms in order to clarify some information that was presented in the article: ” I’d like to clarify the recent misleading headline in the UK’s “Daily Mail” and other European publications about me “seeking a travel partner”. They did a very comprehensive interview about my life and then pulled that headline from my response to one question, “Do you ever get lonely?” …my answer was “Yes, of course I feel lonely sometimes, and I eventually hope to find the right sailing partner…” I also talked about how traveling alone has helped me connect to Nature/God/Spirit and how in fact I always find nice, welcoming people everywhere I go! but the media must have thought that was the most exciting thing I said in the whole hour, so “Sailor Wanted:” became the rather misconstrued headline!?!! in fact I’m not seeking a ‘travel partner’ right now, although I appreciate all of your queries and wish I could share a slice of this life with all of you!? but what I meant was more that, like everyone, I’m trusting that a soulmate to share this life with will eventually appear as magically as a set wave rising from the sea! #...

When we flex our power as consumers to support people and products who share a similar vision and intention for a better world, we start to feel less alone in this battle. This is our opportunity for daily activism. Everyday actions for Earth accumulate, and as subtly, yet powerfully as a rising tide we can begin to make a difference. I’m constantly looking deeper into my own needs and actions to see where I can do better for the Earth. I started eating a plant-based diet, eliminated cleaning and beauty products that use harmful chemicals, and choosing products with mindful packaging. Before buying something new, I ask myself, “Do I really need this?” And before throwing something away, I think, “How can I reuse this?” In the constant work aboard Swell, I find that the more mindfully I go about fixing, building, or modifying something, the longer it lasts, the more proficiently it works, and the better I feel about it! Even the intention and spirit and in which things are created, truly matters. Surfing provides us with a deep gratitude for ocean. We are so lucky that there’s always another swell on...
