In 2007 she stops the tour but continued to triumph in her journey. Winning big wave competitions and starting the first contest «Nelscott Big Wave Classic womeof. Eventually Keala became one of the bravest women of the world in surfing. In 2013 she won the Billabong XXL Awards at Chopo`s in a 20-foot wave.
