What do you love most about being a pro surfer, and what’s the toughest part: I love being able to travel around the world with some of my best friends doing what I love most. The feeling after surfing all day is the best! I think the toughest part about about being a pro surfer used to be trying to do school work as well as travel a lot, but now that I have graduated it is much easier.
Which style of music do you listen to before a heat: I like a wide variety of music genres, it can go from a super girly pop song to rap. I like Jay-z 's new album right now.
What do you think it takes to be number one: Focus and confidence with your surfing.
What is your motto in life: Everything happens for a reason- I think of this line a lot when something isn't going the way I wanted it to.. it helps! haha
What do you like to do during your down time (when you’re not surfing): I like hanging with friends, shopping, reading and downloading/ listening to new music.
Dress or jeans: Jeans more than dresses.
Do you prefer staying in and having a mellow movie night or going out with friends: The majority of the time I prefer a mellow movie night.. except special occasions it fun to get all dressed up and go out with the girls.
Out of all the places you have traveled to, which place stands out and why: Maldives, its beautiful and has picture perfect waves!
What is your go to meal the night before a contest: Nothing in particular..something more on the healthy side I guess.
What makes Volcom Women’s so unique: I think Volcom Women's has the most awesome team! All the girls from surfing to snowboarding to skating are all so cool and fun to hang out with. Were all so different but get along so well!
