A Surf Gal We Adore: Malia Osterkamp
She fancies long walks on the beach and Black Flag!
There are times to dance, stroll, surf and charm. And, there are times to do all at once–meet San Clemente's Malia Osterkamp. After taking a break from QS competition over the last year, she’s returning to the singlet in a few weeks. Yes, she surfs better than most men and stuns above the brine. Miss Osterkamp is the type of gal who wishes she could sit front and centre while Kurt Cobain wails so she could justify her Nirvana T-shirt (but was four when he hit his fateful 27), frequents punk shows and when we asked if she joins the pit, she just laughed and said, “Is that even a question? I do at every show, it doesn’t feel right if I don’t!" She’s 19-years and isn’t a stranger to blast beats, sweat and some sometimes more than playful shoving. But, when it comes down to love and lust, a tropical locale, nice dinner and lemonade is her vice–which she swears she doesn’t spike with Vodka, but we don’t believe that. Not for one second! We asked the Brazilian-Caucasian melting heart a few questions. Let's briefly explore what makes Malia tick:
Stab: Where are you from?
Malia: San Clemente, Ca
What did you have for breakfast this morning?
Almond butter toast, pineapple and black coffee.
Describe your perfect man:
Tall, blonde, blue eyes, tan, smart and a weird sense of humour like me.
The perfect first-date scenario?
Picnic on the beach in some tropical place, and a nice walk on the beach afterwards. Cliché, I know!
Your worst-ever date?
I haven't been on a super bad one yet, but I don't like movie dates. I love talking so that's not my first choice.
The best date you’ve ever been on?
Beach all day, a very nice dinner and then a punk show to end the night. It was the best date ever!
Liquor of choice?
Haha, well I'm 19. So I'll go with lemonade.
Favourite activity outside of surfing?
I just recently fell in love with Pilates and yoga.
Three best things you’ve seen on the internet recently?
Jay Davies' movie Native was so good. Other than that I'm just seeing a lot of memes on the internet. Way too many of them.
Weirdest DM you’ve ever received?
It's so wildly inappropriate that I don't even feel comfortable typing it out.
If you could be doing anything right now, what would it be?
I'd like to be in Bali on a surf trip with some of my girlfriends. Cause girls just wanna have fun.
Last band listened to on your Spotify?
What are you reading now?
I just started reading Girls On Fire by Robin Wasserman.
What's that? I'm so clueless? Nice try, though.
Loud chewing or chewing with mouth open or smelling bad. Oh, and anyone who's obnoxiously loud.
What is romance to you?
Having a connection when you first meet and keeping the connection grow as you get to know each other.
Ever been on a blind date?
Favourite part of a man’s anatomy?
The brain... Oh and abdominal, biceps and triceps.
Is surfing the world’s sexiest sport?
It is... isn't it?
Where’s the perfect romantic getaway?
Anything tropical and not too many people. I feel like Fiji would be pretty nice... Tavarua or something along those lines. Who could say no to that?
