Sydney Harvey, Surf Program Lead
Sydney was born in Chicago and grew up in Orange County! She spent most of my summers in Oakland, San Francisco, and Berkeley visiting family members that have been scattered across the bay area. While Sydney has been standup
paddleboarding for many years with her dad, she fell in love with surfing in particular while in high school after “borrowing” a cousin’s surfboard. In addition to sharing the joy and healing of being in and around the ocean with others, Sydney am also passionate about the study of economics. She specifically loves learning about how markets impact environmental and human health. Sydney studied just that at Saddleback Community College and UC Berkeley! When not studying or surfing, you can find her playing guitar (she loves playing jazz, jammin’ to the blues, and anything by the Red Hot Chili Peppers), going to live shows (especially music and stand-up comedy), and riding her bike!
