#MCM Koa Smith Is The Pro Surfer Every Girl Dreams Of Dating
If you thought Koa Smith was strictly a pro surfer, think again. After shooting a project for Alexander Wang, Koa is adding modeling to his list of accomplishments. He might’ve built a name for himself as a surf competitor to be reckoned with, but he’s the real trophy here. Here’s a glimpse into Koa’s heart.
How did you get into surfing?
I was 3 years old and I saw my older brother starting to surf. I followed him into the water and was obsessed right away!
Your brother is male supermodel Travis Smith. Would you ever want to walk the catwalks?
Definitely, my dream is to walk the walk with him!
We heard you shot for Alexander Wang’s new line with Steven Klein. Tell us about that!
It was a project Alexander Wang was doing with DoSomething.org. It was my first big modeling experience, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. But Steven made it easy. I think he’s a wizard!
What would a first date with Koa be like?
I’m a very adventurous man. I love having dinner outdoors. I may tell you we’re going out to eat, but then surprise you with a candle lit dinner by the ocean. It’s happened before!
Beyoncé loves surfboard! Have you tried that position?
I love Beyoncé and I love that position. It might be my all time favorite.
What can a girl do to impress you?
Do something risky!
What is something that most people don’t know about you?
I have super a power where I can sleep anywhere at any time. You don’t want to travel with me because I’ll be sleeping the whole time and I won’t talk to you [Laughs].
Where is your favorite place on Earth?
My home, Kauai, Hawaii!
