Brianna was born and raised on the island of Kauai surrounded by all it’s breath taking scenery and beauty. All she ever wanted to do growing up was be in the water and surf. At the age of eleven she won her first contest and since then it’s been her life’s goal to become a professional surfer and qualify for surfing’s elite World Tour.
