As a talented longboarder and California native, Julie Cox loves to travel and to shoot photos along the way. In October of 2016, Julie opened the Traveler Surf Club & Coastal Outpost in Pacifica, CA. Traveler was born out of the desire to get warm after surfing and offers amenities including hot outdoor showers, surfboard storage, lockers, sauna, sunny garden, and heated outdoor furniture.
In March of 2019, Julie and her partner, clothing designer, Rel, opened their 2nd Traveler Surf Club & Coastal Outpost at Malibu’s iconic First Point.
Julie started surfing at age 8 through the Jr. Lifeguard program at Leo Carrillo State Beach and remembers being entranced by the ocean as a little kid. She grew up in Agoura Hills, in Los Angeles County, not far from the longboarder's paradise of Malibu, and soon became a local at LA county beaches.
As a university student UC Santa Cruz, on the central coast of California, Julie earned a degree in Environmental Studies in tandem with a pro surfing career. She surfed on the Roxy team for eight years and enjoyed surfing with the best surfers in the world.
Through surfing, Julie has led an interesting life combining all things surf. She launched The Jule Collection in 2005 with Jed Noll, a line of jewel-inspired women's surfboards that mixed her ideas and surf knowledge with his masterful shaping. The Jule Collection can be found at Traveler and Noll Surfboards.
Julie worked as Operations Manager and Director of the California Surf Museum from 2008-2012, a non-profit organization with a mission to Preserve Surfing Heritage.
She also competed in the women's longboard tour where she was ranked 5th in the world in 2007, 2008 and 2009. Julie taught surfing at Las Olas Surf Safaris for seven years and coached surfing in the San Francisco Bay area for many years.
