With 2 world championship titles, Kelia is one of the most graceful, carefree, and above all, versatile surfers in the world. She's equally fluid off the lip or cross-stepping to the nose; whether she's longboarding or shortboarding. As a grom, Kelia and her four brothers were dropped off at Waikiki early in the morning and didn't get picked up 'til sundown. By fourteen, she was not only competing against the world's best in longboarding, but also beating them.
When Kelia is not competing on the ASP World Longboard Tour, she spends most of her time hanging in the ‘Doll House’ in Manhattan Beach, CA with her best friend and roommate Bruna Schmitz. She's known as "Sister" among all the South Shore folk because that's what she's become to the world at large. Sis's biggest goal is to be a "positive influence in women's surfing," she says. "I want to help make women's surfing bigger."
