About Sarah Baum

Growing up on the South Coast of Durban, South Africa, Sarah started surfing at the age of 8 and quickly progressed to compete professionally. At 14, she started competing on an international level and narrowly missed out on qualifying for the Championship Tour at 17-years-old. After a few close calls in the following years, Sarah embarked on a hiatus from competition until 2019, when she recommitted herself to the Qualifying Series. Residing in Newcastle, New South Wales, Sarah earned major career wins and fell in love with surfing again. Qualifying for the Challenger Series for the 2022 and 2023 seasons, "Baumy" is determined to get on the Championship Tour.
