They say big things can come in small packages. At just 6-years-old, Sydney native Quincy Symonds is a perfect representation of that.
Directed and shot by Sean Slobodan and James Winegar, ‘Quincy’ is a short, inspiring film featuring an incredibly talented little grom with a huge future ahead of her. Quincy’s first day on a board was done in emulation of her father at the age of 3.
Without even realizing what exactly her father was doing every day at the crack of dawn, she requested to tag along. Her father, being an Australian surfer with convenient access to the world famous Snapper Rocks, jumped on the opportunity to show his little girl the ocean, and hopefully help foster a love for both the sea and surf.
As expected, she was immediately hooked. She was doing an admirable job learning on her dads 5’8 board, but eventually needed her own stick. Her family commissioned Australian shaper Dan Patch to create a more size appropriate board, which she has utilized with stunning skill.
You can expect to see Quincy Symonds’ name to only become more and more familiar as she progresses through her bright future in the sport.
