Dr. Katie McAnena is from the West Coast of Ireland.
She’s been competing and travelling the world for windsurfing for the last 10 years. In the the last 6 years has been focusing also on SUP.
Both in racing and surfing Katie has won multiple national titles and has competed at the ISA World championships representing Ireland. She balances life as a full time doctor and mother to baby Mara with squeezing in as much water time on her local coastline as possible.
Living in North West Ireland she can maximise her water time in world-class waves with her close mates and husband Finn Mullen. Travel will always be her great passion but in a world where our carbon footprint is ever more important, Katie is blessed and contented to push her limits in the huge swells which hit her local coastline on a weekly basis.
