Father – daughter duo Willow and Gene Hardy are firmly woven into the fabric of the Margaret River Region community.
Willow is an incredibly talented surfer, and last year at just 14 years old took on some of the world’s best after winning the wildcard entry into the Margaret River Pro. She is currently touring on the east coast with her dad and ticking up experience in preparation for taking another shot at the Pro this year, and is the definition of a local favourite!
Gene was born and bred in Margaret River and you won’t find many people more passionate about the region and uniqueness of what’s on offer. A natural storyteller, he runs Cape To Cape Explorer Tours so if you’re out on the track you may just bump into him. Or take advantage of his incredible knowledge of the geography and wildlife, and book in for a tour.
Lucky for us, Willow and Gene have shared some of their local favourites.
