I joined Finisterre because I wanted to work for a brand that is doing its bit to help protect our planet. It's amazing to work for a company striving to lessen its impact on the environment and specifically in protecting our oceans. My connection to the sea is through surfing. When I was younger, I used to be afraid of the sea and how vast it is. Whilst on a trip to France I gave surfing a go, and after the very first session I was hooked. The best thing about surfing for me is the confidence it gave me in the sea. I am no longer afraid of the ocean, instead now it is somewhere I find calm - especially when sitting out on a board looking out towards the horizon.
Working at Finisterre has allowed me to connect with so many like-minded people; whether it be through talking to customers in store on a daily basis or when we have our in store events with musicians, conservationists or professional surfers and film makers. What I love most about Finisterre is the sense of community around the stores.
