Belinda Baggs born and raised in the working class neighborhoods of Newcastle, Australia. The only daughter of a surf-obsessed father she says “she doesn’t remember back to when she learnt to ride waves just that it feels like she has always known how.” At the age of 16 Bindy started competing in the Australian longboard circuit. In the years 2000 and 2002 she took first place, along with an assortment of final placings in the World longboard titles.
Feeling constrained with the ‘high performance’ approach she was introduced to traditional ‘log’ riding by Malibu stylist Dane Peterson. To Bindy this was a breath of fresh air that opened up a whole new world to her. She became disinterested in contest surfing and dedicated her life to traveling the world in search of perfect point surf.
Bindy currently resides in Noosa Heads, Australia
