Malia Jones is an American surfer and swimsuit model. She is also married to actor, Alex O'Loughlin, famous for his role on the CBS drama, "Hawaii Five-0."
There are some people that simply know what they love at a very young age. Such was the case for Malia Jones. Although her name means "the state of water when it's calm" in Hawaiian, the same can not be said for her personality when it comes to shredding it out on the waves. Malia has a been a competitive surfer since birth, more or less (her mother put her on a surfboard the very next day after being born). By the time she was 15, she had already won her first girls' division of the United States Amateur Surfing Championship.
Malia's big win did not go unnoticed, either, as she was spotted by Surfing magazine at the time, and asked if she'd be willing to model for them. From there, the "/model" portion of her profession officially began, and both sides of the spectrum have been a whirlwind of achievements ever since. Since being named one of People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People," as well as one of Esquire's "10 Sexiest Athletes," Malia has also done campaigns for such famous brands as Coca-Cola, Capri Sun, and Corona.
Of course, there would be no bigger honor for a sexy surfer such as Malia than to be featured in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Fortunately, for both her and her fans, such a monumental occasion did happen, leaving men everywhere swooning, and young woman with a great role model to look up to. Who says you can't be beautiful and talented all at once?
Malia is currently married to "Hawaii Five-0" star, Alex O'Loughlin. The two had their first child together in October 2012.
