Check out Kalen on Soundcloud and Instagram!

What’s your hometown?
Honolulu, Manoa

What’s your understanding of noRep?
I think that noRep boardshorts is a sick brand, there logo is sick and i think that this team of activist, would be great. so stoked to be part of the team.

What are your goal/dreams?
My dream/goal is to probably become a professional bodyboarder, and later on compete in the iba pipe challenge.

What does Activism mean to you?
Being an activist means to make a social change, like by spreading out a word and by making a positive impact on the community around us.

What's the one thing you'd like to shoot?
I would probably like to shoot pipe in the winter when i grow older. that would be sick.

Have you got any hidden gems?

 

Why surfing?
Getting out in the water just gives me this stoke. doesn't matter if the waves are big or small you can always find the same stoke if you love the ocean as much as i do.

How old are you?
14

What's that one thing that inspires you?
One thing that inspires me is going out at half point on a big day and seeing all the professionals that i see on magazines or videos and just watching them bust out a big flip. watching them just makes me want to work more harder to be like them one day.

Aspirational question - how would you make this a better place?
I would make this world a better place by doing beach cleanups. beach cleanups are a very important to me, they help the environment and also keeps people active. also by cleaning up beaches, it makes the future more brighter, so that the next generation can experience the same stoke that we all share when we go to the beach.

If you could surf anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I think i would probably go to the skeleton coast on a clean sunny day, to get the barrel of my life.

How do u see yourself in 10 years?
I see myself in the winter, charging pipe. with bodyboarding as my full job, and still repping noRep boardshorts.

What's the 1st thought when you wake up in the morning - Today I Shoot, Surf or ???
My first thought in the morning is thinking what i have to do today, how big it is, and what time i could go to the beach. i usally always check surfline in the morning and getting stoked on where ever im going. and hopefully do some big flips.
