Spanish kitesurfer Gisela Pulido had her first kitesurfing session at Peahi, on the North Shore of Maui, Hawaii.

The 24-year-old rider kicked off her new adventure – the Big Wave Challenge – in the iconic Hawaiian surf break. In 2018, Pulido aims to surf the world’s biggest waves.

“What a day! I have no words to describe how I feel right now! Jaws is one of the most amazing waves on Earth. I was dreaming of this moment so much, and I can’t believe it finally happened,” expressed Pulido.
