What are your best features?

I love my whole body and am thankful it allows me to do everything I dream of doing.


Where are you from?

Maui, Hawaii

5/5 Perfect!

What is work?

Work is fun! Windsurfing and organizing Butterfly Effect events around the globe –

5/5 Fancy a business partner?

What do you do in your spare time?

Surf, run Baldwin Beach with my dog, hang out with my friends in Paia, chill with my boyfriend, yoga, go on crazy missions to secret waterfalls, dance, practice aerial silk.

5/5 Er Aerial Silk? Blimey


What could a guy do to impress you?

I’d much rather have a guy just make me laugh.


What do you like about being in a male dominated sport?

There are always hot guys around.


Does a windsurfer make a good boyfriend?

For sure! Just as long as spending time with me isn’t the same time we spend windsurfing together… I like to have a separate time just for us.


What is your most memorable achievement to date?

Starting The Butterfly Effect with my friend Juliana and seeing it continually grow is pretty memorable. As far as competition goes I’ll never forget one of my first contests when I got 4th in the PWA Aloha Classic.

5/5 Pretty impressive!

What’s the wildest thing you have ever done?

I spent the night alone in the desert of Baja Mexico, in the back of my broken truck, 10 hours south of California with no-one to call or help. Fortunately a couple rancher Mexican boys showed up (pure miracle) out of nowhere to help me fix my truck and get back home.


Are wetsuits sexy?

Not really…

2/5 You’ve spent too much time in Maui my dear!

What is more important: a solid bank account or a solid six pack?

Both would be perfect!.

4/5 A girl who wants it all…

Finally, you tell your boyfriend you are going sailing for a quick hour. You come back 4 hours later. What do you say to him?

Ho’okipa was going off! Did you get some good waves too?
