Bio

Born and raised in the beach town of Montauk, N.Y., Quincy Davis first got on a surfboard because she was bored. Her brother and two best friends were always surfing, so eventually she tired of just tanning on the beach, decided to grab a board and that was it – she was hooked. She’s quickly established herself as one of the rising stars of the junior ranks, qualifying for finals and winning events around the world. These days Quincy splits her time between Montauk in the summer and Rincon, Puerto Rico in the winter, and travels the world competing in hopes of one day qualifying for the Women’s ASP World Tour.

Q & A

  1. WHEN DID YOU START SURFING? WHERE AND WHY? WHO GOT YOU STARTED?

  5. WHAT'S YOUR MOST MEMORABLE WAVE/SESSION/TRIP?

    One of my most memorable trips was my first surf trip I went on. It was to the Maldives my first year on Volcom. It was with all the other Volcom girls and we got to go on a boat and surf some of the best waves I've surfed still to this day.
