Meet North Storm brand Ambassadors Lara Hindmarsh and Dylan Boag of Woebegone Freedive

Ocean conservationists, professional free dive instructors and avid ocean explorers. Both with a deep reverence for all things in nature.

Lara and Dylan of Woebegone Freedive are locals of the South Coast in NSW. They have first-hand experience exploring the pristine coastline and natural surrounds. Most importantly they organise and facilitate beach clean-up days. Clean-up days are held in the Jervis Bay area and always bring good vibes to the local community.

Sharing the same passions, Lara and Dylan have braved the elements and intense pressures of the ocean. Two peas in a pod, they both enjoy extending their knowledge of the sea to all. Teaching people how to free-dive, snorkel and explore seal colonies. In addition they swim with wobbegong and grey nurse sharks! Along with, dolphins, migrating whales, local marine life, investigate sea caves, beaches and more!.

Together they are the awesome duo at Woebegone Freedive! We are so stoked to have them on our team at North Storm!
