Sarah Desmet

Sarah has a heart of gold and the looks of a surf goddess. Another Sumbawa-born friendship, I first met Sarah through Rosary in Bali, and our friendship was cemented through Sumbawa’s perfect surf, and my need for encouragement after 1.5 years out of the water! Sarah has travelled the world several times over, funding herself initially as a air hostess. However, six months a year based in Belgium was still too much and she turned her hand to surf coaching, surf guiding and has also become a qualified masseuse. Sarah has now settled in Hossegor, France, where she intends to set up her own massage business right next to some of Europe’s best surf. Always full of fun and positivity, Sarah is the perfect playful surf partner, and her huge network of friends internationally are testament to that.
