So often, the best inspiration comes from friends. Not long ago, Kimi Werner and Léa Brassy joined Liz Clark on her sailboat, Swell, for a surfing and spearfishing trip in the warm waters of French Polynesia. Exploring the atolls above and below the surface, they had a chance to share the things that motivate them most—seeking challenge, getting back to basics and staying true to the authentic self.
"I had a 450-mile upwind voyage to meet them, but to be able to introduce Kimi and Léa to the life I live on Swell was really special," Liz recounts. "It was awesome to be with girls so much like myself who love and cherish the same things. We were so happy riding waves, diving and gathering and cooking food together."
As a child growing up on Maui, Kimi Werner’s family was one of the many who looked to the ocean for food. She was taught something Hawaiians have always known: You should never ever take more than you need.
Now a well-known leader in the spearfishing community, she’s become a passionate advocate for a conservation-based approach to the sport.Learn More About Kimi
