Stephanie, the six-time World Surf Champion on the Women’s ASP World Tour and 3X TRIPLE CROWN of Surfing Champion, Hawaii, was born in New South Wales, Australia. She currently resides in her apartment in Tweet Heads, NSW Australia.

Keeping this on the note, she is the first woman in the history to win six championships at the early 30s inspiring every woman in the world to chase to the highest peak one can imagine.

Her first season was in 2005 and, in 2007 she won a championship. Consecutively the very next year until 2010, and then in 2012 and 2014 (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2014) thereby holding six titles.

She also has claimed more than 30 elite World Tour victories.

Stephanie has a nickname: Happy Gilmore, which suits her personality. Happy Gilmore is 30 years old now and already 6X World Surfing Champion which is a vast and nearly an unbelievable achievement for a woman of her age.

Stephanie was born and raised in New South Wales, Australia and her hometown are in Kingscliff, New South Wales.  She stands 178cm tall (5 ft. 11 inches) and weighs 68 kg. Her stance is regular.

Stalking into her Instagram and Facebook, we came up with the idea that she justifies her title of Professional surfer, illustrating the surf world in every best possible way she can.

The short videos and shots of her surfing are amazingly eye-catching. Beside this, we also got to witness her playing guitar.

When it comes to the relationship of famous personalities, one definitely put all their head into it, specially gossips, rumors, and sometimes scandals.

Talking about Stephanie Gilmore and her relationship status, she has a rigid affirmation of being single for her quest to the seventh surfing world title. Hardly there are any gossips about her relationship; she is single by her choice.

It’s crystal clear summarizing her posts that, she is a fun and charming person.  Among her different post, what caught our mind is her saying, “If you can make a woman laugh, you can make her do anything.”

Honestly, this caption is mind-blowing, and her photo in this post is amazingly angelic. She smiles so beautifully, reflecting her charming personality.

She has given herself a name: Fierce girl. Yeah, she is a fierce girl. She has been strong enough to come up to this point of life with as many titles as she attempted.

She has been forceful enough to take such risk in life. And she has been bold enough to develop such a personality.
