Rachel Presti

Rachel was the first German surfer to become ISA JUNIOR WORLD CHAMPION in 2018. She grew up in the United States and has dual citizenship through her German mother, which is why she surfs for the German team. Starting with success in junior competitions and the National Scholastic Association, Rachel has now made a name for herself internationally. At 18, she is currently on her way to becoming one of the world’s elite surfers. Hard training, competitions and a lot of travelling characterise her everyday life as an athlete. Her next big goals are the 2021 Olympic Games in Tokyo and qualifying for the WSL Challenger Series. Gaining competition experience in the WSL to establish herself in the scene in the future is the top priority at the moment.
