Phylis was the sports first female star. She earned this reputation not winning contests but charging big Sunset and Waimea Bay back in the late 70′s. She was one of bodyboardings first big wave chargers.Pictures started turning up of her taking massive freefall drops on her bodyboard outside at The Bay on the biggest days. Her performances were up there with any hardcore surfer of the time. She even had rigged a special super thick wrist rope and a homemade square plugĀ for extra strength when wiping out to help prevent her being seperated from her board. Phylis was profiled in 79 in Surfer Magazine.
