Kim Hamrock, widely known in the surf world as Danger Woman, caught her first wave at thirteen years old. It wasn't until the age of sixteen when she started surfing seriously.

Known for pushing the limits in the big wave arena, she raised the bar for the next generation of women surfers. With twelve U.S.A. championship titles, six West Coast championships, one East Coast championship and numerous other titles under her belt. Kim is truly a force to be reckoned with.
