How many people do you think would be comfortable kiting into a wave like that? How many deserve the handle "babe?" She has some accident images bloodied up in a neck brace on her site from a nasty run in with a reef in Hawaii after a kiting move gone wrong.

Looking good is only one part of things. A small part in some ways. A kick butt waterman is just that, regardless of gender. She's got my respect.
