Meet Ella Williams from New Zealand. When Ella isn’t fighting off hobbits, orcs, and guys who want her number, she spends her free time in the water, surfing the day away.

Ella Williams (13 January 1995) is a surfer from Whangamatā, New Zealand. At age 18, she became junior world champion in Brazil. She is set to compete in the inaugural shortboard surfing competition at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

At the 2019 ISA World Surfing Games, Williams gained provisional qualification for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics by finishing 29th. New Zealand had been allocated up to two spots for men and women surfers, respectively, but Paige Hareb came eighth at the 2021 ISA World Surfing Games, but only the top seven qualified.

In April 2021, Williams attracted attention by expressing hesitancy to the COVID-19 vaccine despite the “strong” encouragement by the International Olympic Committee and the New Zealand Olympic Committee. Within weeks, she changed her mind and got vaccinated.

This is Williams’ first Olympics, and she has already made it to the third round after finishing second to American Caroline Marks. She knows what she’s doing, and she looks great doing it.
