Kassia Meador, the first lady of Long Boarding, an accomplished photographer, who also designs her own line of wetsuits and surf accessories called Kassia + Surf.

California born and bred, Kassia began surfing at age 14. By the time she was 17, Kassia was a sponsored pro-longboarder, traveling the world and competing in surf events globally.

Known for her graceful surf style, Kassia was crowned the “queen of noseriding” by the New York Times and in 2011 ranked 2nd on the WSL women’s longboard tour.

Throughout her 17-year career as a competitive sponsored athlete, Kassia was actively involved in designing products under the umbrella of her sponsors. In 2013, Kassia left sponsored surfing to build a brand–that focused on quality instead of quantity–for women by women.

Since launching in 2015, KASSIA+SURF has pushed the limits of women’s surf culture, lifestyle, and design. With a mission to create aquatically functional wetsuits, accessories, and lifestyle gear, KASSIA+SURF is about freedom, empowerment, and enlightenment. Delivering superior quality goods by using eco-conscious production. Future flavor with a classic twist.
