We were super excited to get 18-year-old Roxy surfer girl, Kelia Moniz, in on our interview series. She's fun-spirited, carefree and one of the most talented young surfer chicks out on the water. Of course, growing up in Hawaii could do that to you! Oh yeah, and did we mention how her love for fashion makes her that much cooler in our books?
Here's what Kelia filled us in on:
What is one food that you absolutely can’t live without?
Sushi! I'm obsessed. [Editor's note: We agree Kelia!]
What food do you eat right before you surf that you feel gives you the most energy?
Something sweet and filling, like a smoothie or acai bowl!
Surfing requires a lot of strength, what is your go-to workout move to help keep you strong?
I just stick to the basics: running, push-ups, sit-ups and other core exercise. Surfing keeps you strong and in shape, so I just try to surf as often as I can because it's the most fun way to exercise.
Most athletes have a mantra that pumps them up, what’s yours?
I don't really have a mantra. I just try keep positive and not think too much when the pressure is on because that usually throws me off.
How would you describe your fashion sense out of the water?
I wouldn't know how to describe my style, but If I were to pick a couple celebrities whose street style I like, it would be Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez.
What’s your favorite article of clothing in your closet?
Cut off jean shorts. [In true Roxy spirit!]
