KEALA KENNELLY – REAL EXTREME!

Keala Kennelly was born on August 13, 1978 on the Hawaiian island of Kauai. The future legend of female surfing professionally engaged in this sport at the age of 17 years. Soon Keala took part in the World Series. Her performance was magnificent, which allowed her to take an honorable 2nd place in the global standings of the “WQS Tour”.
As it turned out, Keala Kennelly did not take the prize by chance, because in the future she was awaited by a series of tournaments in the series at which she showed amazing results and finally made herself known. In 2000, Keala crushed her rivals at the Gallaz Women’s Pro Championship, which was held in Tahiti in the small village of Teahupoo. She won another victory in the same Teahupoo in 2002 and 2003, when she took part in subsequent championships.

Keala Kennelly achieved great success in 2003, when she managed to reach the 1st line in the WCT rating, and also to rise to 2nd place in the ranking of women surfers in the world. This was followed by another leadership in Teahupoo, and then leadership in the Roxy Pro and Turtle Bay Pro competitions, the first of which took place in the Fiji Islands, and the second in Hawaii. But on Maui Billabong Pro she was not able to win, the athlete took 3rd place. All these competitions and victories in them made Kennelly the owner of the Triple Crown.

2007 was also extremely successful for the young athlete. After a series of confident victories and get into the top ten athletes in the ASP ranking. In the same year, Keala won the Billabong Pro Maui silver medal, and also received the team gold of the Summer X Games championship. Kennelly later announced her decision to leave surfing for a while. She devoted her free time to acting and music.
Keala Kennelly made her debut as an actress in 2002, starring in the movie Blue Wave. A little later, she got the role of the main cast in the series “John from Cincinnati”, produced by the large channel HBO.

Having allocated sufficient time for an acting career, Keala decided to switch to musical activity. Having tried herself as a DJ and confidently standing on her feet in a new field, she went on a large-scale and long tour. Kennelly traveled to several continents and performed in France, Spain, the United Kingdom, the USA, Brazil, Australia and even South Africa.

Having devoted enough time to musical and acting careers and having received great pleasure from new hobbies, Keala soon returned to professional sports. Taking a break, she did not at all lose her knack and did not loosen her grip. Great results were not long in coming. Already in 2010, Keala set a new record when she became the first woman in the world to win the Nelscott Big Wave Classic. Keala Kennelly’s new achievement was an inspiration for other women surfers who dared to compete with the big waves in this tournament.

In 2011, in the already familiar Teahuppo Keala, she ventured out against one of the largest and most dangerous waves ever seen in the vicinity. It is worth noting that at that time a storm warning was announced, so the local population was generally afraid to approach the shore. Having dealt with this test, after 3 days, Keala suddenly could not cope with the wave in ordinary competitions and received a serious facial injury, having hit one of the underwater reefs. At the moment, she has fully recovered from the injury.
During her career and achievements, Keala has been awarded many prestigious awards. Among them are the 2002 Surfer of the year, as well as the Girls Performance Award.

2007 was also extremely successful for the young athlete. After a series of confident victories and get into the top ten athletes in the ASP ranking. In the same year, Keala won the Billabong Pro Maui silver medal, and also received the team gold of the Summer X Games championship. Kennelly later announced her decision to leave surfing for a while. She devoted her free time to acting and music.
