Kassia calls it the "holy grail" of surfing. It's like flying. And she wants to help you experience it, too. There's nothing like it.

"Like getting a baseball lesson from Babe Ruth."

In my book, she’s the best female longboarder of all time. Maybe it’s the never-ending smile mixed with laughter that is so intriguing. Getting surf advice from Kass is like getting a baseball lesson from Babe Ruth. She’s a Hall of Famer that has a bigger picture outlook on life. In another lifetime, I’d like to comeback as Kassia Meador: the Queen of Surf and most epic of humans.

Kassia is one of my all time favorite surfers, because she approaches a wave with a her own style and we've had so many rad sessions together all over the world. When I was a teenager Kassia took me in and invited me on surf trips. and she was and still is one of the most stoked surfers I know. Kassia's stoke and generosity has always inspired me, and her surfing is a beautiful reflection of who she is.
Jen Smith, Two-Time World Longboarding Champion
Kassia is one of the realest, kindest, and most talented, yet incredibly down-to-earth surf pros/surf instructors I have been fortunate to know! I attended her trip to Costa Rica and will attend her next trip to Nica. She has become a friend and true inspiration on many fronts. Once you meet and get the benefit of spending time in the water and on land with Kassia, you will be a supporter and fan for life.
Jen Noonan, LA County Lifeguard
There is no surfer who has had greater influence on my own surfing and life than Kassia Meador. As a consummate learner, she is a true student of wave riding and of life, always looking for ways to evolve and grow, while staying true to her roots. Kassia's surfing is what made me understand the meaning of style. She truly has paved the way for women’s longboarding and alternative craft riding. She’s one of a kind.
