Now at Northcliffe, she trains under her childhood icon Naomi Flood and it seems to be paying off. At the 2023 Australian Surf Life Saving Champions, Nomes took out four titles in the Open competition, including the prestigious Open Ironwoman. When she is not training and competing, Nomes loves the Gold Coast lifestyle, enjoys cooking, pottery and ready, and is a big Taylor Swift fan.
