Mercedes Maidana has a unique story. Unlike most surfers, she grew up nowhere near the ocean. Originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, she was a normal city girl living the cosmopolitan life until age 20, when she visited Brazil and surfed for the first time. From there, she traded in her high heels and makeup for wetsuits and sunblock. She ditched the city, and began traveling the globe looking for waves. Like many surfers, she ended up in Hawaii.
Once settled on the North Shore of Oahu, she began to feel the lure of big waves. That initial pull of conquering a big wave has now become her life’s passion.
Mercedes has been learning and applying manifestation techniques since the early 2000’s. She envisioned herself becoming one of the top female big wave surfers in the world and achieved it by getting nominated for her overall performance in 2009, 2010 and 2011 as one of the five finalists at the Billabong XXL Big Wave Awards, considered the “Oscars” of big wave surfing, just a few years after she started surfing.
Through her understanding of the power of manifesting, she created the life she lives today – sharing her message of abundance with others, and as a surf Ambassador for Patagonia. She travels the world, surfing and inspiring people to follow their dreams. Mercedes shares her experiences through her blogs and seminars around the world at Patagonia Events, as well as through her Motivational Talks to teenagers and adults. Mercedes’ life is focused on loving, and her passion is to inspire and help others to manifest abundance and find happiness inside. She is currently working on her first book, a guide to manifest our dream life.
