Paige Alms is self-taught and self motivated. When this down-to-earth female isn’t surfing or working, or doing intensive physical training at her local gym , you can find her making art and being creative, organic gardening,  or playing ping-pong in friendly tournaments at her home in Haiku.

 Born on the island of Victoria B.C. Canada, Paige Alms relocated to the warmer island of Maui when she was 9 years old after traveling the entire breadth of Australia in a van with her mom. Ho‘okipa became the stomping grounds at age ten and by the age of 15, Paige’s first big wave session had her instantly hooked.

Pe‘ahi is where this athlete honed the skills for riding mountains, having the famous big wave spot only five minutes from her house. She has been nominated 4 years in a row at the XXL Awards and just recently won the “Women’s Best Overall Performance” for 2014-2015 season.

She continues to push herself to ride the biggest waves possible alongside her peers and hopes by doing so she can inspire other people to push their limits and live their dreams!
