Meet Malia, a surfer from Haleiwa, Hawaii. Haleiwa is on the Northshore of Oahu and Malia is the perfect example of what you think a girl from Hawaii would be like – laid-back, cool, and at home in the water. When Malia isn’t surfing, she’s swimming or playing water polo. She loves the ocean, beach, salt water, perfect waves, and hanging with her friends. Even though she lives in paradise, her favorite place she has ever traveled is to Tahiti.
Malia has a passion for life. She lives every day to the fullest – from running to the beach in the morning, long boarding during the day, and dancing away the night. When she’s not on the beach, she loves designing and being creative. Her friends would describe her as loud, outgoing, crazy, and hot and her personality and lust for life is infectious. The best advice she has ever received is to be humble and yourself, and she definitely lives by both of those principles.
Malia’s loves simple, comfy clothes. She is most comfortable in a bikini on her long board. Malia loves customizing her clothes by cutting them or adding fringes. Her style has matured since working in the fashion industry and modeling has changed her view of fashion. What does her style say about her? “I’m free, I’m myself.”
Check out what Malia brought to Los Angeles for the Spring 2013 photo shoot to get to know her and see what she can’t live a day without.
“I live in my bikini! It represents the simple care free person I am. My leash is for surfing. Surfing is one of my favorite things to do, it puts me in this state of peace and relaxation. The rope expresses my love for nature and hiking. Every item pieces me together.”
