Malia Manuel – Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2020


Malia Manuel, a professional surfer, is one of the athletes featured in this year’s issue.

The 26-year-old surfer has been dominating the water since she was 1a young teenager. Manuel became the youngest U.S. Open of Surfing champion at 14 years of age in 2008.

Manuel, a Hawaii native, has gone on to win several notable competitions. Now, she’s adding professional modeling to her resume.

“Honored to get the chance to work with everyone at @si_swimsuit and to also be a part of an empowering movement that involves consistently embracing yourself, both flaws & assets – untouched and unfiltered. Thanks for having me be a part of the 2020 issue,” she wrote on Instagram.
