Jenny Kalmbach

Current Location: Kona, Hawaii

Favorite COOLA Product: Classic Sport SPF 50 Fresh Mango

Jenny was born and raised in Costa Rica. After graduating from university, she moved to Kona, Hawaii. It was in Hawaii that Jenny first learned to stand up paddle and she soon fell in love with the sport. In 2008, she won the inaugural Battle of the Paddle, emerging as a complete unknown to take the win. She followed that up by winning the prestigious 32-mile Molokai to Oahu race. In 2010, she and another paddler set out on a mission to raise awareness for plastic contamination in the ocean. Their adventure, Destination 3 Degrees, spanned nearly 300 miles and crossed all the major channels in Hawaii, including the 82-mile Oahu to Kauai channel. Paddling now for 9 years, with numerous wins and podium finishes around the world, she has established herself as one of the sport’s most high profile and recognizable racers.

Christine Donaldson

Current Location: San Francisco, California

Favorite COOLA Product: Classic Sport SPF 50 Fresh Mango

I began skiing at age 4 and it has since become one of my greatest passions in life. I raced for many years but my family emphasized the rewards in deep powder and steep terrain. During my growth as a skier, I also fell in love with music. These passions conflicted most of my life, always playing tug-of-war, until I let them fall into sync a few years. Now my music and skiing influence each other and take part in a beautiful cycle of give-and-take, where I can adventure in nature's gifts and show gratitude with my heart's song. It's this commitment to physical health, inspiration, and creativity that keeps me smiling every day :)
