BODY OF WORK From Malibu to Montauk:

CRUSHING on both COASTS Frankie Harrer and Quincy Davis. Two girls + two coasts = one love: SURFING. These two first bonded four years ago while competing on the amateur circuit surfing the NSSA and Surfing America contests. They were also members of the US Surf team The newfound firendship quickly blossomed into bi-coastal besties. They do what all girls their respective ages (16 and 19) secretly wish they could. It’s the stuff that dreams are made of. Chasing waves with bikinis as their uniform. How lucky are we to have scored a sneak peak of their recent trip to Tahiti?! Surf legend Raimana Van Bastolaer, sounded the alarm as I was at the Harrer family Malibu home listening in on Frankie’s upcoming cover feature interview with icon Sam George. A serious swell was on the way. With Frankie in Malibu and Quincy back in Montauk they headed straight to the airport with big barrels on their agenda. Frankie’s home break is Malibu - a pretty tough line up when you are beating out a bunch of boys for the best waves, and Quincy has her hands full with Montauk’s unpredictable, but rewarding breaks - but tackling Teahupoo on a tow swell and surfing there in general is something you dont see many girls doing.. But then again, Frankie and Quincy aren’t just any girls. The ocean is their office and they helped us gain a unique perspective on paradise. Our director of Surf Content, a seasoned veteran of photographing these types of swells offered “My first thoughts after seeing the photos of Frankie on those bombs was these could be the biggest waves a 16 year old girl has ever ridden at Teahupoo.” “I’ve known Frankie since she was a skinny 12 year old surfing in Indonesia and I have shot with Quincy on the north shore, so I know how good they both are. But they handled this swell in Tahiti and that’s just a whole new level of guts and performance - - -.” So when you see them hanging out at Zuma or Terrace, remember, they are not your average girl.s and they don’t hang out with hipsters.. They are harcore surf sensations poised to change the world of Women’s Surfing. #crusingonbothcoasts Folow Frankie: @frankieharrer Follow Quincy: @quincydavis photos by Morgan Maassen
