Hi my name is Malia, I am a 15 year old competitive surfer and soccer player from Encinitas, CA. I learned to surf when I was four in Costa Rica and fell in love with it. I am currently the two-time defending NSSA Gold Coast Girls Champion (2014 & 2015). I also compete on the World Surf League in the QS and Junior QS Series. To balance out surfing, I play a team sport, soccer, that helps with my cross training. These two sports have allowed me to travel to Hawaii, Costa Rica, Mexico and Indonesia. My other hobbies include modeling, yoga, making jewelry and spending time with my friends and family. I am super excited for this opportunity with Sea Vibes and can't wait to see where this adventure takes me!
