Haley Watson is 22 years old, and a Florida native. Using her hometown of Flagler Beach, FL, as a training ground, she is a professional surfer that travels the world, and is a 3x consecutive East Coast Women's Surfing Champion.

As an active philanthropist, she is the Founder and President of the MayDay Memorial, which hosts an annual surf classic at the Flagler Beach Pier in May to promote awareness and fight heart disease, especially in women. She began this to honor her mother, Dollie Sue Watson, after her untimely death at the age of 48 in 2006.

The goals of the MayDay Memorial are to continue creating awareness and fight heart disease, encourage prevention, as well as a healthy life style, and to provide aid to victims of heart disease. Proceeds from this year's event are donated to benefit The Halifax Health Foundation.
