Meet Jill

Hi, I'm Jill Paulin, and I'm the Chief Editor here at Northern Crush.

I'm from Gatineau, just outside Ottawa, in Quebec, and I fell in love with surfing on my first trip to Lake Huron when I was a teenager.

Since then, I've been surfing and teaching others to surf on Vancouver Island, in Nova Scotia, and even in Toronto!
