HOMETOWN: Koloa, Hawaii
Brianna Cope started surfing when she was 4 years old with her dad and sister, and immediately fell in love with the ocean. She started competing at the age of 10 and won her first surf contest shortly after. That victory was the start of her competitive surfing dreams where she enjoyed a successful junior career. Cope came extremely close to qualifying for the elite Championship Tour in 2014 and 2015, and has been fighting to reach her ultimate goal ever since. A beacon of positivity, Cope is a role model for many and uses her huge social media following to spread her message on good health, meditation, fitness and the power of positive thinking.
