The crispy, hot black sand of New Zealand’s West Coast beaches coupled with a bunch of time spent in native bush - on repeat, every weekend - can really mould what a kid learns to value. That was the case for the founder of CaliWoods, Shay Lawrence. She had a nature-filled childhood, always being thrown into the beautiful environments on offer around the country.
The sizzling sand, surfing and bush walks sure built character, but they also nurtured a little bundle of appreciation and love for all things nature.
This is Shay, the founder of CaliWoods. Surfer, travel-lover, and a kiwi trying to inspire more sustainable changes.
