A day in the life
Tahlia Bourke was born and raised in the small coastal town of Byron Bay. Growing up she had an affinity with the water and the ocean and spent a lot of her childhood on the sandy shores of Northern New South Wales. Her close-knit family nurtured her interests in all things and from a young age Tahlia was already competing in junior and state championships in swimming and surfing.
After leaving high school, Tahlia pursued a career within the surf and modelling industry; securing affiliations with Cinta Swim, Cream Girls Wear, Byron Board Riders and The Surfboard Warehouse. Her passion and love for all things local has seen her align with many Byron Bay and Gold Coast based companies and initiatives.
Today, Tahlia spends her time surfing the local breaks of Byron Bay and working at The Surfboard Warehouse. When she’s not in the shop, she can surely be found surfing one of her favourite spots, with Broken Head being her top pick.
