We’re really excited to announce that Hawaiian surf royalty, Kelia Moniz has joined the FCS team.
Known globally as ‘Sis’, Kelia is revered for her gracefully smooth style on a longboard and her versatile aquatic talents on many varieties of surf craft. She’s also highly respected as a positive role model for girls and women everywhere - all traits FCS was excited to embrace. The fact that she owns two longboard Championship Titles merely cements the hype.
“I’m psyched to align with FCS and I’m equally excited to grow the relationship and work on some exciting projects”- KM
A member of one of the most respected families in surfing, Kelia grew up with four surf crazed brothers and a big wave surfing father, Tony Moniz, who surfed at the elite tour level for over 3 decades.
“Sis really epitomises the surfing lifestyle and she’s found a nice balance between competition and free-surfing. Her positivity is infectious, and she connects with a wide range of surfers on so many levels. We’re stoked she’s into the FCS brand, and we’re excited about the future”, Richie Lovett – Sports Marketing.
Kelia joins the FCS family alongside her little brother, World Championship Tour surfer Seth Moniz, who’s been endorsing FCS hardware for several years now.
SurFebruary is a fun annual event in February, where participants raise money for cancer research by catching a wave or getting in the water every day – rain, hail or shine.
This episode sees Rich catch up with Mick Fanning on his recent trip to the US to chat about what he’s been riding, the development of his iconic fin template and how he came to embrace the FCS II system.
