Leila realizes the life that most can only dream about. Growing up on arguably the most beautiful island on earth is a great place to start. Ditching the grind of year-round competition and instead “working” as a traveling freesurfer is icing on the cake. Winning the 2011 World Junior title once aimed her towards a different path, but rolling with “good people” and Beyoncé’s music inspire her more than chasing points. Leila eventually rerouted her goals and now follows swells around the globe despite being petrified of flying.
