Born and raised in Maui, Talia grew up surrounded by surfing, art, and all that is beautiful about Hawaii so it was only natural that she was inspired by the culture. When she was only 15 months, her father took her out on a surfboard – and that was just the beginning. Talia became the youngest woman to ever paddle the 32-mile Molokai to Oahu paddle board race on a team. Not only is Talia a natural-born athlete, but she also has a strong entrepreneurial drive with two businesses to add to her list of accomplishments – Pashey Designz (a jewelry line) and Mgbikini (a bikini line, with her sister). Ultimately, Talia’s goal is to continue to carry on the Polynesian tradition of paddling and becoming one of the best water women to beat – and she is well on her way.
