From her homebreak Pavones, Costa Rica to chasing barrels in Tahiti, Leilani's journey has
inspired many surfers around the world.

She proudly represented her country in surfing's first Olympic debut in 2021 and for years has battled among the best surfers in the world through the WSL.

"Since then I’ve had the honor of representing my country in the highest level of competitions, traveled, and get to work everyday on become the role model I would’ve wanted as a little girl." - Leilani McGonagle

Leilani embodies the spirit of adventure and resilience that VEIA stands for both in & out of the water. We're thrilled to support her through her journey as a competitive surfer and always look forward to seeing what she has in store for us.
