Ariane
Ochoa

Born in Bilbao in the Basque Country, Ariane has built her life around her passion. She discovered surfing when she was only 5 years old and started competing at 8. Feeling deeply connected to the ocean, she hasn’t stopped since and thrives in learning how to read and understand each wave better.  

A junior World and European medalist as well as multiple times Spanish national champion, she now participates in the WSL circuit. She hopes to eventually make it to the Olympic Games and to tackle some of the world’s most iconic spots.

STAY COMPETITIVE.
