Julie Cox

 Name: Julie Cox
Hometown: Oceanside
Age: 26
Local spot: Between the Harbor and Pipes with a little Malibu, Leo Carrillo and some Pleasure Point thrown in.
Work/school: UCSC- BA in Environmental Studies. Massage therapy license in 2003.  Now, I am developing a quiver of surfboards called the Jule Collection with Jed Noll. Surfboards and art/photography shows are my focus at the moment. I also teach surfing in Mainland, Mexico (www.surflasolas.com) and coach surfing in California. Photography, massage therapy, and surfing for Roxy help pay the monthly bills.
Future: I’m excited about it. Life keeps getting better. I look forward to where the Jule Collection takes me. Photos, surfing, travel. I hope to keep following my heart and passions.
Past: This is a broad question…Well, I grew up in Agoura Hills. During high school and college breaks I worked at the Leo Carrillo Camp Store in Malibu to be near the water and camped and surfed as much as I could. UCSC, traveling, surf contests, and work. Now here I am in Oceanside. There have been struggles along the way of course, but what is life without ‘em? Makes us who we are.
Travels: Australia, New Zealand, Cook Islands, Tahiti, France, Costa Rica, Mainland Mexico, Oahu, California, Baja.  
September… is the best time of year.
Sponsors: Roxy, Gallaz, and Jed Noll Surfboards.
Favorite local surfers: Linda Benson, Kyla Langen, Terry Prettyman, Matty Lou, Scott, and all the rad longboard ladies of the area.
Wheels: 1996 Ford Ranger truck with extra cab and shell.
I surf kind of like: Hmmm, a bit like Schuyler McFerran possibly.
