When the world went into lockdown in 2020, Brisa Hennessy found herself isolated in one of the most remote places on the planet – on the tiny remote island of Namotu in Fiji with her parents and a small group of local Fijians. Through facing her fears surfing huge Cloudbreak she was able to reflect on her sense of self, who she is and what her purpose is on this planet.
“Fear is uncomfortable. But I learnt [at Cloudbreak] that when you accept it’s real, it’s there, you’re willing to embrace it. You either stay uncomfortable or you grow.” – Brisa Hennessy, 2021
