This is an excellent interview in Surfer Magazine about Keala Kennelly — her thoughts on women’s professional surfing, her relationship with Andy Irons, and experiences tow surfing Teahupoo and that horrendous faceplant to the reef!
Interview of Keala Kennelly in Surfer.com
Here’s Keala towing into the meanest, thickest wave on the planet: Teahupo’o Tahiti.
By the way, the image of Keala’s reef gash to her face in this article is very disturbing and the worse that I’ve ever seen in 30 years of surfing. So beware if you are sensitive to flesh wounds.
Keala Kennelly is one of the most hard-core women pro surfers out there. She’s pushing the envelope of women’s surfing and we at Maui Surfer Girls commend her courage and passion for the sport of surfing. You go girl!
