Paige Alms grew up on the island of Maui, where the spirit of Aloha was planted in her heart. The water quickly became a part of her everyday life, taking up the sport of surfing at age 9. With Paige’s fearlessness and perseverance, along with one of the world’s best big wave surf spots in her backyard, it was inevitable that she’d begin to conquer these monsters.
Today, at age 26, Paige has become Maui’s big wave ambassador, living her humble life dedicated to her passion. Most recently in 2014 Paige was nominated for the Billabong XXL Women’s Performance Award, being one of the few who has successfully paddled into the wave at Jaws. Alongside her incredible accomplishments, Paige leads her life with a shining heart, smile, and spirit, one we were grateful for the opportunity to document.
