#Quote
1My goal is to continue to act and still be a professional kiteboarder.
2With kiting you have to land a trick, and in that instant you know whether you won or lost--I knew I could become the best in the world if I trained. But with acting, there are different variations; there's not a right or wrong way. It's so hard because it's so out of your hands. I have no idea what's going to happen!
3When I was living in the Dominican Republic, the local kids became a part of my family.
4Acting is such a crazy industry, but kiteboarding keeps me grounded.
5I've seen so many scripts, and I want to do everything. Like with kiteboarding, you have to be fearless. I'm not scared.
6I'm working on a movie called Labor Day (2013) with Kate Winslet while still balancing kiteboarding. Being an actress and an athlete is a challenge, but I'm excited to see what happens.
7I started kiteboarding when I was 13. My dad was a kiteboarder, and I begged him to teach me until he finally agreed. He made me wait because it can be dangerous.
#Fact
1Has a major phobia about knives.
2After seeing her performances in The Guest (2014) and It Follows (2014), many fans and film enthusiasts have come to consider Maika a 'Scream Queen' of the current generation, though Maika isn't a fan herself of the label.
3She is also a professional kiteboarder.
4Once had her own clothing line called Airbound Apparel while she was training for kiteboarding in the Dominican Republic city of Cabarete, and most of the proceeds went to the local charities. What inspired her to begin the line was the children she had met and become close with while practicing kiteboarding.
5Her first paid gig in acting was being in a commercial for Pizza Hut.
6Some of her favorite horror films include The Shining (1980), Halloween (1978) and A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984).
