Sponsored by Hawaiian Royalty, rides a bodyboard for fun, has a son that surfs, and gives away her surfboards for those less fortunate — Melanie Bartels is much more than a top WCT World Tour surfer. Growing up on Oahu's rugged West Side, her explosive yet smooth style was groomed alongside some of the finest surfers in the world. Yet she's not afraid to ditch the surfboard and have fun on a bodyboard or longboard, showing her versatility on all watercraft. Seventhwave is super stoked to welcome Melanie to the team and to support her goal of becoming the first Hawaiian women’s world champion. Aloha.
