City to Surf with Portia Ferrari

Portia Ferrari: A City Girl Who Surfs

The sea means many things to many people. Living in the heart of a city, it's often easy to forget about the natural world, but it's always closer than you think. For Portia Ferrari, a relationship with the sea goes hand in hand with her lifestyle - taking her from the city to the shoreline.
