Infamous Signs Their First Surf Athlete, Leilani Gryde, One of the Top Up and Coming Female Surfers

NORTH VANCOUVER, BC - Infamous Management is excited to announce the addition of Surfer Leilani Gryde, the first surfer to join their elite crew of athletes. Leilani is a talented surfer from Kona who recently ranked 6th in Surfer’s New Hot 100 along side female surfing's new generation of female surfers. A dedicated and talented surfer, known for her aggressive riding and experience in sizable waves. After a minor injury Leilani came back to end off the 2007 season with a 4th place finish at The Reef Pro at Haleiwa in November. Leilani goes into the 2008 season determined to make the CT with a strong performance at the Roxy Pro Women’s Surfing Festival. Leilani has developed strong ties and respect within the surf community with her natural talent, good nature, energetic personality and loyalty. All of these qualities have made Leilani a stand out in the surf community.

“For the past year I have been looking for the right female surfer to start off the Surf Program at Infamous. Leilani had always been on my list after seeing her compete and checking out her coverage. Once I met her I knew she was perfect for our crew. Leilani embodies everything we look for in an athlete: talent, personality, marketability, determination, and above all integrity, loyalty and a good attitude. You can’t help but be drawn to Leilani and I’m so stoked to work with her to help her reach her goals!” - Roberta Rodger.

With the support of Infamous and her sponsors Oakley, Etnies, and Lost Surfboards Leilani is sure to continue to rise in surfing.
