SANOE LAKE (Lena)
new to film but not to surfing. The Hawaii native and model turned
actress comes from a long line of notable athletes
involved in water sports.
Her mother won numerous
surfing championships and is one of the legendary Waikiki Beach Riders and her
father is a Big Wave surfer in Hawaii. Her grandfather was a member of the
Kahuanu Lake Trio while her grandmother at age 72 remains an avid rough-water
Lake, who now lives in
California, grew up surfing the waves off the coast of Oahu, Hawaii. It was that
history that made her a natural fit as the gypsy surfer girl Lena for Blue
Crush, her feature film debut. But she is not a novice in front of the
camera. At 16, longtime friend and Jet Set Management Group founder Cindy
Kauanui asked Lake to join the Jet Set stable of athletic models. Since then she
has appeared in Sports Illustrated, File, Seventeen and on the cover of Wahine.
She was a guest host on
MTV's Ultimate Winter Vacation and on The Surf Channel in surfing shows
spanning the globe from Tahiti to Bali, from New York to Japan.
