We are excited to announce that USANA Athlete and Professional Surfer Felicity Palmateer will be competing at the USANA SurfAid Cup Bondi 2019. Not only is Felicity known all over the world for tackling big waves, she also dedicates her time to help SurfAid achieve their goals. We’ve taken the time to find out more about why Felicity is so passionate about donating her efforts to such a worthwhile cause.

Q: When did you first hear about SurfAid?

A: Years ago I was invited to be a part of the SurfAid Cup at Manly.

Immediately I recognised what a fantastic cause SurfAid is and what great work they do. I met so many people that day who genuinely care about making a difference to the people of the Mentawais and remote areas of Indonesia. The work they do as a result of the fundraisers and other initiatives is transformative, and it’s work I’ve seen firsthand when I’ve travelled to Indonesia.

Q: Why do you feel so passionate about being a part of the USANA SurfAid Cup Bondi 2019?

A: It’s about continuing my ongoing commitment to helping create positive change and awareness. In 2018 over $120,000 was raised by the teams competing at Bondi, and $10,000 of that was by the awesome young ladies who picked me to surf with them! The girls, Sarah, Lucy, Laila and Ebony, went door-knocking around Bondi for a month, chasing donations! That was so, so inspiring. It was an absolute honour to surf with them.

Q:Why have you chosen to be a part of the USANA Family ? And what has been your favourite product so far?

A: USANA makes quality products! They have such a diverse range, catering for a wide range of activities with optimum health being the key focus.

Health and wellness is everything to me. Being a professional surfer, and having to be ready for waves of all sizes and whatever conditions the ocean might throw at me, is just one area I focus on. I need to feel good, which gives me confidence, and that means taking care of myself in every possible way.

The HealthPakTM is my favourite! It suits my lifestyle, I’m constantly on the move, and I love that the supplements are packaged into daily doses. I simply count the number of days I’m away and take that number with me. Throw them in my bag, then throw them down each day … doesn’t get any easier!
