Kelia Moniz

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 14, she was not only competing against the world's best in longboarding, but also beating them.

When Kelia is not competing on the WSL World Longboard Tour, she spends her time between Hawaii and New York City. 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,". Or in her own words: "I want to help make women's surfing bigger."


Favorite place to travel? Honolulu, Hawaii is my favorite place to ever travel to!

Best moment in your career? Every time I get to travel with my family to surf.

Favorite things to do when you’re not riding? Play with my nieces and nephews ;)

Fashion essentials? A good sneaker, good glasses, perfect denim and a sick jacket to make any outfit lit.

Favorite moment with ROXY? It would be a sin to pick one moment.... we make every moment AMAZING and I’m so thankful for each one with my girls!
