Quincy comes from a family of surfers, and it was in Montauk where Quincy rode her first wave, fell in love with surfing and, by the age of 12, secured a sponsorship with surf wear manufacturer Volcom. Known for her fast and agile yet graceful style, it didn’t take Quincy long to become a standout on the junior tour by winning contests around the globe and claiming 1st place at the Corona Pro from 2012 to 2015. While Quincy divides her time between traveling for sponsors, media shoots, and a select array of surf contests, her sights are set on creative pursuits in the worlds of fashion and beauty—but Quincy will always find time for the waves.
