Kimoa

Surfing...Where to start. I used to beg my dad to take me whenever he would go which seemed like almost every day. He would come home afterwards and act out his waves whether it was getting barreled, doing a huge turn or even taking a solid set to the dome. His arms were in the air, his voice was extremely animated and I hung on every word. Regardless of which part he reenacted, I knew I had to try and I knew I would love it. There's allegedly a quote that I have no recollection of but absolutely believe to be true, in which I angrily (as angry as a small platinum blonde, bowl-cut sporting toddler can be) told my parents after being denied going surfing again, that I was going to "Take off my diapers and go surfing". To my credit, I did just that lol. In recent months I've had the chance to mix surfing with my modeling work and this job for the new surf brand Kimoa was an absolute highlight of that (despite being more lifestyle than actually surf/action). Working alongside Formula One driver Fernando Alonso, World Champ Surfer Shaun Tomson and last but not least Pedro Castro & Trickster Inc. was a rad experience. Also thanks so much to my booker Paul Nelson and JE Model for the opportunity. The following is a shorter version of the commercial we shot on this 3 day job that took place all around LA in the desert, Malibu, Venice, and finally downtown. Hope you enjoy it...brah.
