Even if you aren’t a big surfing fan, Keala Kennelly is a recognizable name and face because of her mainstream appearances. She had a cameo in the 2002 Hollywood flick Blue Crush and earned a recurring role in HBO’s now-defunct drama series John From Cincinnati.
Although she has tried to branch out into acting, Keala Kennelly is one of the best female surfers around. She’s known as the Queen of Teahupoo. She was the first woman to be towed there and rode the biggest tow-in wave by a woman.
