Kai was born a beach baby and was raised with salty hair, sandy cheeks, and a name that means ocean. She is from Paradise Cove Malibu and will always be a small town kind of girl at heart. As she and her sisters got older, a bigger beach city was calling their names, which was Huntington Beach, CA. Kai grew up professionally Tahitian/hula dancing since she was about 5 years old and the Hawaiian culture holds a very special place in her family’s heart. You can find Kai racing in the sand dunes with big adult toys, waking up early to wakeboard on that perfect glassy crack of dawn lake, or even just going camping and being perfectly content with a tent and a campfire in the middle of the woods. For her, it’s the simple things in life that remind her life isn’t so bad if you do what you love..and this is why you can find her here at GritCycle; it gives her the same feeling she had growing up of doing things that set her soul on fire and made her feel so alive! Whether she’s dancing all over the Saddle Room, doing a push/tap like the Hulk, or inspiring people with her hill song, Kai’s goal as an instructor is to make people feel alive and to just have fun. Sometimes it just takes 45 minutes with Kai Kai to remind you what it’s like to actually LIVE and to be ALIVE.
