Isabella Veliz Vasquez


Isabella Veliz Vasquez has been a Hoalen brand ambassador since 2008. Originally from San Cristobal, an island in the Galapagos Islands, she grew up in the freedom of an exceptionally diverse wildlife on this volcanic archipelago in the Pacific Ocean.

No one in her family surfed, and it was by following the boys that she managed to tame the elements of her island. The learning process was not made easier by the machismo of some locals, but she hung in there and became the first female surfer of the Galapagos.

Today, Isabella has chosen to work as a crew member on sailing boats in order to discover the rest of the world, which is unfortunately often less preserved than her own.

When she is not traveling the world, Isabella is back in the Galapagos, the sound of the waves lulling the rhythm of her days. She inspires more girls to lead a healthy lifestyle in contact with nature
