Esther Hahn is a professional surfer with four international titles. She turned vegan in 2008 aged 23 while studying after she became ill.
“I actually feel more energized as a vegan. I think consuming large amounts of animal products, especially dairy, can take a toll on the body. So I feel better, both physically and mentally, surfing as a vegan... I’m constantly surprised by how easily adaptable a vegan diet can be. Grains, vegetables, and beans are fairly universal foods.”
Her titles have been achieved with National Scholastic Surfing Association, the United States Surfing Federation, the Eastern Surfing Association, and the Association of Surfing Professionals.
She has also modeled for sponsors.
