What’s your take on how women are treated in todays surfing society? I love seeing more women in the lineup,
getting respect, charging it, and just having fun! Much has changed these few decades, it’s getting better. I’ll still see guys
drops on gals just for fun…. but girls just gotta commit and keep going.
Any bad habits? I don’t put my clean laundry away.

and playing guitar.
Best advice for all those young surfers out there: Stay true to yourself and put the time in the water. The more you surf the better you’ll be! (but respect your limits)
If you could be anywhere in the world, where would you be? New Zealand. Surfing and mountain bike playground.
Quote to live by: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
