After winning the W. Australian championships in her native country Emilia moved to the northshore to pursue her dreams of riding big Pipeline and becoming a world champion bodyboarder. I guess after placing 5th in the semis of the 2003 Pipe championships you can say Emilia is on her way. A few years ago Emilia got a bonus on the way to pursuing her goals and dreams by meeting Pipemaster Tamayo Perry who is now her husband. Emilia is a true Watergirl. She also bodysurfs, longboards, shortboards and even tandemed at Teaupoo this year. Emilia models and wants to continue pursuing a career as a spokesmodel alongside her surfing endeavors.
