Dame of the Day: Mahina Maeda

2013 HD World Junior Championships - Mahina Maeda (HAW) ASP /Andre Motta

Today’s Dame of the Day is Mahina Maeda. Maeda’s been surfing since she was four, but when she was 16, she became the second woman in history to ride the fearsome 30-foot waves at Nazaré, Portugal. Her ride caught the attention of Billabong, who named it the Ride of the Year. At 17, she’s spent the past year as one of 17 women touring with the World Surf League’s Women’s Championship Tour.
