A big happy FYC welcome to surf sisters Lucy & Sive Jarrard from Carlsbad, California. The competitive surf sisters have joined the FYC family and we could not be more thrilled. Not one but two ranking competitors pursuing their passion for surfing out of beautiful Southern California. At 15 years old and 14 years old the girls have been raised in the waves where surfing has taken a front seat in everyday life. The girls currently rank 1st & 2nd, respectively, on the Women's Longboard. Scheduled for a busy 2017 Summer we begin here with a Q & A so you can meet the girls. Find out who's favorite movie is from the 1980's and who loves spaghetti.
