One of Maui’s token female big wave surfers, Paige Alms is self-taught and self motivated. A jack-of-all-trades, the twenty-seven year old maintains a career in surfing by working. A lot. Odd jobs like ding repair, house painting, construction work, surf lessons and catering supply Paige with the funds to travel, compete and surf. When this down-to-earth female isn’t surfing or working, or doing intensive physical training at her local gym DRATC and Inspiration Heath Maui, you can find her making art and being creative, organic gardening, or playing ping-pong in friendly tournaments at her home in Haiku.
