Sport: Surfing & Kitesurfing
Hometown: Lahaina, Hawaii
Debbie Jean grew up in coastal North Carolina with a love for the ocean. After moving to Hawaii, surfing became a lifestyle as she fell head over heels for the sport. Lucky enough to score a job on a sailboat, her passion was able to flourish as she spent more and more time on the water. With a background in both sailing and surfing, the natural progression was toward kiting. Debbie Jean took her first lesson on Maui, but decided to spend a season in Cape Hatteras where she found an old VW bus to call home and learned how to kite. She resides in Hawaii, where she enjoys the beauty of nature and the authenticity of a life on the sea. Her goal is to set sail with her lover aboard their boat Calliope and pursue new islands and adventures.
