A city girl from Buenos Aires, Mercedes surfed for the first time on a trip to Brazil. Soon after, she skipped the city to be closer to the waves. Settling on the North Shore of O’ahu, she fell in love with the art of big wave surfing. Today, she’s a well-respected female charger. “The ocean,” Mercedes says, “gives me so much joy.”
