One of the most successful women surfers of all time has been enjoying a break in Dubrovnik. Sally Fitzgibbons (26) from New South Wales, Australia, uploaded a Dubrovnik vacation photo onto her Instagram account with the comment “Old Town in Lights,” and within minutes had 5,000 likes, hardly surprising as over half a million people follow her.
Sally Fitzgibbons is a professional surfer and has been on the Women's World Tour since 2009. She started her career at the tender age of 14 and since those early days has picked up numerous awards and medals.
Interestingly Sally Fitzgibbons has a tentative link to Croatia. Her third cousin is the former Manchester United and Australia goalkeeper Mark Bosnich who has Croatian family roots.
