Along with biking, swimming, and surfing, Kiana loves acai bowls, ahi tuna, and jamming out with her family. Check out what else makes Kiana healthy, active, and happy!
“Surfing is an everyday choice and routine for me. It is what keeps me happy and sane. They say follow your bliss, my bliss is surfing.”

“The ocean is my playground. I consider myself a mermaid for my constant need and love for the ocean. It keeps me happy and I believe it cures. In fact, I believe SALT WATER SOOTHES THE SOUL.”
“I love music! Ever since I can remember I have always played the Ukulele. I love hearing new songs and teaching myself how to play them. My family and I embrace music, play together and trade off songs that we know. It’s kind of like we have our own family band. My dad plays guitar and my sister and I play ukulele. Playing music together is a tradition. Not only does it brings us together, but it is a way to be creative and learn from each other. “
“I have been part of a non-profit organization for 2 years that involves taking disabled and challenged people surfing. It is called KORE, Kauai Ocean Recreational Experience. I love helping and sharing my love for the ocean with others, especially to those who are less fortunate than me. This organization makes me appreciate all that I have as well as grateful for everything I can do. Seeing them smile and light up is the best gift and feeling.”
“I love eating healthy. Vegetables and tea… yum yum! As an active girl, eating right and healthy is important. I always pack my salads with carrots! They are my favorite vegetable!”
”This is from the Kilauea Fish Market, where I work as a cashier and they also sponsor me. This is where I get my fish. Ahi is my ultimate favorite and I like it pretty much raw! It tastes best that way!”
“Another hobby I like to do is paint on my surfboards. I love being creative and coming up with different ideas and colors for my boards. I just got on Boardstix and they have so many cool pens and colors! They work great and I love using them to paint.”
“Acai bowl you are my favorite!! I love acai! So good! It’s best snack and I love having these before a contest or heat.”
