The four-time gold medalist marries Tim Shannon, an amateur wave rider
Professional surfer Lisa Andersen married her fiancé Tim Shannon on May 21, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.
Andersen, 39, who won four consecutive World Championship titles from 1994-1997, tied the knot with Shannon, an amateur surfer, in a private ceremony at an undisclosed location.
The couple announced their engagement in 2007 at the annual Roxy Pro surf competition at Sunset Beach, Hawaii, saying they planned to marry at a “secret spot.”
In 1992, Andersen became the first ROXY-sponsored athlete. She withdrew from the sport after a severe back problem, but came back in 2000 to win the Billabong Pro in France.
Next for Andersen is coaching the U.S. surf team for this year’s X Games in Puerto Escondido, Mexico.
