Meet our Ambassador: Zahlia Short
All About Zahlia

Energetic, confident, and highly driven, Zahlia Short exceeds expectations through hard work and dedication to her sport and lifestyle. As far back as Zahlia can remember, surfing has been her life. Watching her Mum and Dad surf inspired a passion within her that only surfing can satisfy.

Having been an avid surfer for over 10 years, seven of which have been competing, 2016 proved to be a pivotal year coming first place in the NSW State Titles and many other junior events nationwide. At 17, Zahlia is still considered a junior but is transitioning onto the world stage, competing in the Women's Qualifying Series and Junior Pro Series alongside her little sister Shyla.

1. What’s your ultimate self-care routine after a long day to relax and unwind?

I love to have baths to relax and exfoliate and moisturise my body, put a hair mask in my hair and take my time with my Raww skincare. 

2. ⁠Any advice for someone wanting to pick up surfing for the first time?

Just have fun! Don’t put too much pressure on yourself and do it with friends, the more you surf the better, be patient and keep trying! 

3.⁠ ⁠How do you stay motivated to keep working hard towards your goals?

My sister has similar goals to me so I have a best friend on my journey of achieving the goals we strive for. We keep each other accountable and motive each other! 

4.⁠ ⁠What are your top 3 Raww products?

1. Buff-ME Sugar Coffee Body Scrub

2. Dew Drop Hydrating Serum

3. Super Hydrate-ME Day Cream

5.⁠ ⁠Which is your ultimate Raww go-to product and why?

I absolutely love the Super Hydrate-ME Day Cream because, it is so rich and feels so nice on my skin. Surfing all day my skin dries up and the day cream helps replenish the moisture in my face!  

What does Zahlia do when she's not in the water?

Although surfing is the primary focus for Zahlia, when not in the water, she can be found singing, playing the guitar, or creating content to share with
her ever-growing social community.
