Congratulations, Kelia Moniz, 2012 ASP Women’s Longboard World Champion!

Roxy’s professional longboarder Kelia Moniz was crowned Women’s Longboard World Champion after winning the Swatch Girls Pro in Hainan, China. With her fluid, rail-to-rail surfing and classic hang tens, “Sister” had last year’s champ, Chelsea Williams combed in the finals. “I can’t believe how awesome it feels, I’m so thrilled to get the win…Wow, I’m the World Champion…that’s awesome!” Kelia won her first heat and hit the ground running in every round, showcasing finesse in even the toughest of conditions. The humble and selfless surfer is knows as “Sister” to her hometown on the South Shore of Oahu, and that’s what she’s become to the world at large. Sister’s biggest goal is to be a “positive influence in women’s surfing,” she says. “I want to help make women’s surfing bigger.”
