What do you love most about being a pro surfer, and what's the toughest part?
I love being able to travel the world doing something I love! There are a lot of obligations that make the job hard but at the end of the day no matter what I remind myself I am having fun doing my job, so in love :)

How do you mentally prepare yourself for a contest?
I don't like to mentally overdo myself so I try to take it lightly. There are several things I must do before events - sleep early, eat light, surf the contest site before the event...and I think just doing those few things get me into the mindset that I am ready. It's all about my surfing on the day and not anyone else's in the heat.

How do you describe your surfing style?
I hope my style of surfing comes across as grateful, powerful and progressive. I mean, that is what I am for for sure. Haha!

What do you like to do during your down time (when you're not surfing)?
When I'm not surfing - well it depends on where I am. During an event anywhere in the world I take it super mellow...probably spend more time than ever watching TV show, on Skype or taking it easy laughing all days with friends between free surfs. I don't like to over exert too much energy on off days during an event. Not during an event/at home between surfs I enjoy doing anything active - I can't not be doing something active for too long.

How long have you been on the women;s tour and how enjoyable is it?
I've been on tour now for five years and it's been one heck of a ride! I've learned so much ever since graduating high school and living my life on tour - traveling, learning to lose, learning to win, work with media, compete continuously and still be human!!! It is very enjoyable being able to surf around the world on such a platform that ASP gives us!

What's more inspiring to you at this moment, love and happiness or money and fame?
Love and happiness!!! Because with that comes success, which leads to money and fame I guess? And even if that philosophy of mine is incorrect, who needs money and fame when they've got happiness??!

What charities are you involved in?
The Boys and Girls Club of Hawaii. Such an amazing organization - it simply gives kids another place they belong. I love being someone younger kids can spend time with and look up to because I am one who was always so driven and inspired by others, whether it be someone I watched on movies or got to meet and actually hang around! I want to be that positive influence that helps the kids believe in their potential. That's all it really takes :)

Is there any place in the world you have not yet surfed but have always wanted to?
Tahiti! It's only five hours away form my home I don't know how I haven't been yet!!

What's the secret to your fit body?
Everything in moderation! I am an athlete so I treat my body like one. I eat proper meals - try my best to limit sweets and what isn't good for me but I am also human so I've learned.. "everything in moderation!" I also believe in doing something active every day - if I don't surf I definitely have to make up for it somewhere else, but I think that's also my personality. I've also just realized how much I am beginning to like yoga!

Fancy restaurant or local night club?
Fancy restaurant! I am all about good food!

What makes Volcom Women's so unique?
Volcom Women's is so unique because it covers every aspect of women's fashion - it's edgy, it can be very girly, athletic, fancy, casual and fun!!!

What do you wan the girls out there reading to never forget?
Hold your ground for what you believe in, be passionate in all you do, always remember there is someone out there to make proud, and never ever...for any reason, lose your dignity!!!
