Asmara has always been surrounded by women and loving friends and family. She lives in a home based on love and trust, and most of all surrounded by nature, especially after the decision to move to Bali from the concrete jungle of Milan about a year and a half ago.

She has been in love with water since she was at a very young age, though her interest to swim the waves was only recent after she joined Thumbs Up Surf camp. After she tried surfing for the first time, there's just no more stopping her. Breakfast while watching World Surf League is her new routine and dreaming about amazing new countries to visit for her next surf trip is her evening bed time story she shares with her mom. Surrounded by people who surfs and live by it, she found inspirations in almost every corner of her life and a determination to make the water where her future lies.

She's super stoked to become Surfer Girl's new Team Rider member (and also the youngest), and hopefully this love and passion for the water can be a great inspiration for other girls her age. For sure she has inspired most of her classmates who many of them join her surfing now, and hopefully there will be many more kids out there who will leave their iPads behind and dive into the beautiful sea to surf with her.

Name : Bunga Asmara Basuki
