Kelly Potts’ natural athleticism started early. By the age of 13, she was fully immersed in playing soccer and winning State Titles with her team. In high school, she was the only freshman on the Junior Varsity Volleyball team – also taking State Titles. A trip to Maui unexpectedly changed her destiny when she fell in love with surfing. With her passion and natural abilities, she quickly gained recognition.
Kelly advanced to Regional and National competitions; and competed in all NSSA and HASA events, which were mostly against men. True to her spirit, she realized that competing didn’t resonate in her soul so she discovered another way to represent her sponsors without competing – modeling and promoting the lifestyle through media and travel stories. Kelly is often seen as a muse, and she enjoys traveling to capture the perfect photo of doing what she loves: surfing.
