Kelia Moniz & Leila Hurst

welcome to the nixon global team

Kelia Moniz and Leila Hurst are joining the Nixon global surf team in addition to John John Florence, Josh Kerr, Nathan Fletcher, Chippa Wilson, Conner Coffin and Rob Machado.

Encouraged by her four brothers and father in Oahu, Moniz began surfing at the age of five, mostly on a longboard. Recently she won her second straight ASP World Title in women’s longboard in Hainan Island, China.

Hurst is a Hawaii native as well and grew up in Kauai surfing some of the world’s most challenging breaks. She is fun-loving and positive as she is determined and relentless, spending most of her time on the go, filming surf adventures around the globe.
