We’re not really sure where to start when introducing Brisa as she is the very definition of “one-of-a-kind,” but here we go:
Brisa is a professional surfer on the WSL World Tour with two ISA World gold medals and one from the Pan American Games under her belt. She found her love for surfing and the planet while she lived off-the-grid in Costa Rica, where she was born, surrounded by only the jungle, ocean and no electricity until age 9. She then moved to Hawaii where her passion for competing took off and she set her sights on a career in surfing. In 2018, she officially accomplished her dream of qualifying for the World Surf League Championship Tour as the first to rep her native Costa Rica and will do the same at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, which are rescheduled to take place during summer 2021.
As a plant-based athlete and someone who has an unwavering dedication to educating and empowering her communities, Brisa truly embodies every aspect of the Snow Monkey lifestyle. The work we’ll do together in both the boardroom and the in the field will amplify our shared determination to help the world have expanded access to not only plant-based, nutritious food but also education and the tools needed to mindfully fuel the body.
