Bailey Rosen Joins KM Hawaii Team




OAHU, Hawaii - KM Hawaii, an Oahu-based company, is proud to announce the addition of a new team rider to their lineup. Eighteen-year-old Floridian Bailey Rosen will be joining the KM Ohana off the back of her strong performance and finish at her first Molokai 2 Oahu Paddleboard World Championships race!!


Bailey has been competing in stand-up paddling up and down the East Coast and around her home in St. Petersburg since the age of fourteen.The two-time East Coast Champion recently graduated high school Summa Cum Laude in between her races in California, Hawaii, Mexico, and beyond. While on Hawaii, she took 2nd in the 14’ elite class in the highly competitive Maui2Molokai race and placed 7th overall female, and officially signed with KM Hawaii. Soon to be a University of California Los Angeles student, Bailey is looking forward to bringing KM’s boards and Hawaiian aloha spirit to the mainland.


“I’m so excited to be riding for KM,” Bailey says. “I’m going to be training and competing on production model boards that anyone can buy from KM at an affordable price - a rarity for small females such as myself. The boards are top quality, super fast, and highly competitive!” Bailey also sells KM Boards of all sizes and varieties at her hometown SUP shop and sponsor, Suncoast Surf Shop."


"We are a family owned company and Ohana is a big part of who we are. Bailey is a wonderful ambassador for the sport, and we are excited to have her as part of our Ohana. Bailey has excelled as both a competitor and a student while working part-time in the SUP industry. It is rare to find a person who can function on such a high level in all these fields and still greet people with the girl-next-door charm that Bailey has. Her awareness of the importance of building personal character as well as athletic ability shows a maturity beyond her years."


Look for Bailey to be racing the Compressor and surfing the KM X Board at her next competition, the Ultimate SUP Showdown invitational in Waikiki, Hawaii, slated to be broadcasted on CBS Sports.
