Paige Alms grew up on the island of Maui. At age 10 Paige taught herself to surf at Ho'okipa beach park and by the age of 13, had won her first national title at the USSF National Championships in Oceanside, California. Soon after, she got the itch to surf big waves, starting at close out Ho'okipa, then progressing to massive Honolua Bay. Paige became the first woman to ever paddle in at Maui's outer reef Pier One at age 15.
She won the NSSA Hawaii Open Women Regional title in 2004 and 2006, and went on to win the 2006 NSSA Nationals Explorer Women Division. In 2005 she scored a 9.5 in the Billabong Pro Maui WCT Trials and made the finals of the Women's T&C Pipeline Pro. In 2006, she won the Trails of the Billabong WCT Maui, taking out Triple Crown Contender Stephanie Gilmore in solid Hawaiian surf. Then went on to beat World Champ Chelsea Georgeson in the first round.
Just recently Paige tow surfed Jaws for her first time, and was quoted by many to be the girl to watch. Now, Paige is traveling on the World Qualifying Series, jumping around from place to place, and chasing the dream of a pro surfer.
She is the ultimate water woman, check the list, she's done it... Loves to stand-up paddle and bike for cross training, and works out with a trainer on Maui when she is home. She plans to travel the world in search of perfect and big waves, and really wants to push the limits of women?s surfing on and off the tour.
