Gill’s varied interests have led her down many different paths which include studying Business and Arts Management, working on a variety of festival and events including Riverdance, working in the tech startup industry, traveling all over the world, living and snowboarding in the Alps, studying nutrition along with training to become a yoga teacher in India.

After growing up in the Netherlands Rebecca moved to Spain, Singapore and Italy and returned back in 2002. She believes that this upbringing has given
a constant longing for adventure. When finishing her Law degree she moved to Scotland to proceed with her Masters. Living so close to the sea and joining
the surf club at uni, she got an excellent opportunity to start surfing more.
A year earlier she surfed her first wave and lost her heart to this brilliant sport. The connection she feels with nature, the experienced freedom in the water and the constant challenges got her completely hooked.
After graduating her masters she felt it was the right time to take a ‘off’ and take the opportunity to work and live in a surf and yoga environment. Being excited for that new life experience and combining the love for surfing, traveling and meeting new people while being a host at our Surf and Yoga villa. She is looking forward to make sure everyone staying at Dfrost will have a brilliant time!
