A pro surfer since age 16, Keala Kennelly became the first woman to surf Teahupoo, in Tahiti—the most extreme wave in the world—in 2005. And she's been conquering even bigger waves ever since. As for surf fashion, she couldn't be more pleased about its moment in the sun. "It makes me really happy that my everyday attire is going to be in vogue," says Kennelly, 33. "I won't feel like such a beach bum when I stop at the grocery store after a surf."
