Announcing Miss December 2010

Congratulations to 19-year old Hawaiian hottie Malia Schimmelfennig. Malia beat out a slew of gorgeous girls from all over the world to seal her spot as the last monthly winner from 2010. We caught up with the blonde bombshell to see what makes her tick—and what ticks her off.

TransWorld SURF: Current occupation?

Malia Schimmelfennig : I'm a college student in Santa Barbara and do some modeling on the side.

In your entry you said that Indonesia is your second home. How did that come to be?

I've been going there every summer for years now. Hopefully one day I'll be able to live there—I love the culture and the vibe. It's just an amazing place!

Favorite surf spot?

That's a secret…

Where would your dream surf trip take you?

To the Mentawais, Bali, Tahiti, Fiji, than all over again.

What's the worst pickup line you've ever heard?

"Hey! I lost my phone number, can I have yours?"
