Waikiki, Hawaii, United States
Kelis Kaleopa’a is a Hawaiian surfer, born and raised on the island of O’ahu. She has been gliding across waves since she was a baby and over the years her passion and drive for surfing has only gotten stronger. She loves being in the water and all things ocean related! Off the waves, she loves to hang outat the beach with her friends and to discover new recipes to try out. Family is everything to her and she spends as much time as possible with her loved ones.
Favorite place to travel? I love visiting Japan: the people are so kind, the food is amazing and they have such a rich history and culture!
Best moment in your career? That would probably have to be my first WSL win at Noosa in March of 2020!
Fav things to do when not surfing? I’m a total water baby, but I do love searching up new recipes and trying them in the kitchen!
Fashion essentials? Sunglasses, hat and a cute bikini!
Fav moment with Roxy? Definitely shooting the Honolulu Sweetheart campaign with Sister! It’s been so cool to grow up with her in Waikiki, and getting to highlight our home, in her designs was super rad.
