Interview with Pro Surfer Izzy Poulin

Professional Surfer Izzy Poulin (@izzyisup) is one of our favorites.

Not only does she have a serious love affair with the ocean, but she’s was one of the first influencers we ever worked with. 

We wanted to start interviewing surfers because they are the perfect representative of what Kapuluan is all about. Beach life, travel, surfing, beauty, a love for the ocean, and of course, leaving things and places better than you found them. Izzy was the obvious first choice and we’re excited to introduce her so you can get to know her.
