My beach essentials: pro longboarder Kassia Meador

The surfer, photographer and fashionista reveals her Malibu musts.

As one of the most highly regarded female longboarders in the world, Kassia Meador has made a tidal wave of impact in the sport. When she's not far from shore at First Point, her favorite local hang in Malibu, you may find her pursuing one of her other passions; photography (her work has been showcased in several exhibitions), and design (check out her signature line of wetsuits for ROXY).
