Today’s mixed chick of distinction is Malia Jones. Known for her stunning beauty and her amazing skills handling a surfboard, the California born and Hawaii bred surfer/model is an inspiration to female athletes around the world. Malia’s heritage includes Hawaiian, Spanish-Filipino, German and English. She made her debut on the world surf stage at the tender age of 15 when she won the U.S. Amateur Surfing Competition. Soon after she won, she was approached by Surfing Magazine to model for their swimsuit issue which was the beginning of her successful modeling career. Over the years, Malia has posed for countless magazines and even has the honor of being voted as one of People Magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People. Because of her surfing experience, she was tapped as a consultant for Disney’s Lilo & Stitch – an animated film set in Hawaii about the surf culture. She is currently the mother of three children and helps design a swimwear line for a indie swimwear label. We think Malia Jones rocks and she is our Mixed Chick of the Day!
