Alessa Quizon calls Makaha, Oahu home. She began surfing competitively at 11 years old and went on to have a successful NSSA career, winning the 2008 NSSA Hawaii Open and Explorer division. Alessa started off 2012 strong, including a win at the Billabong World Juniors at Burleigh Heads, followed up with a third place finish at the Billabong Pro Rio WCT event as a wildcard. While in Peru for a WQS event, she injured her ankle, derailing her season and shot at a swift qualification. She fully recovered and with her clean and fast surfing in 2013, Quizon successfully earned her a spot on the 2014 women’s world championship tour.
