Surfersvillage Global Surf News, Whether pulling surfers out of monstrous waves at tow-in surfing competitions around the globe or training water-response personnel on a pleasant day at a local private beach, water rescue expert Shawn Alladio is on top of her game.

On a recent Sunday, she was running an event in which a dozen men on personal watercraft competed for time on a buoy-marked course while simulating the rescue of victims in distress, keeping an eye on her 2-year-old daughter, Shania, and talking about the need for qualified water-rescue personnel -- simultaneously.

Alladio is known around the world for her work at tow-in contests such as the Big Wave Africa Surfing Contest in Hout Bay, Cape Town, Africa. But she is especially famous for having taken on a 100-foot wave in 2001 at Mavericks in Northern California on her personal watercraft, or boat as she calls the personal watercraft.

A local resident since last year, Alladio and her 24-year-old daughter, Kyla Dominguez, run K38 Water Safety, which conducts training and competitions for rescue agencies around the world.
