Where's your favourite place to surf..? Teahupoo, Tahiti

A phrase I use far too often is... OH MY GOD!!

I wish people would take more notice of... The environment

The most suprising thing that ever happened to me was... Landing a major acting role on a HBO tv show.

The ideal night out is... Limo, all my friends, an amazing club with one of my favourite Dj's mixing some kick ass tribal house, dancing all night.

You know me as a surfer but in a different kind of life I'd... Be an actress, and a Dj or own a restaurant or be an interior designer, in my next life I want to be a kick ass singer.

The most favourite place you have been in the last 12 months...

What's the water temperature like where you live..?

What's your favourite thing about surfing..? It makes me feel alive.

What are your other obsessions..? Music, food, fashion

What goals do you have outside of surfing..? To be happy, successful and inspire other people.

What rider inspires you the most..? Andy and Kelly

What music psychs you up before you compete..? Really upbeat tribal house

What defines good style in the surf..?
To look smooth and fluid, to have good transitions between manouvers.

When's the last time you got worked in the surf..?
At Pipe last month.

In a nutshell...
Don't try just be!

Greatest Achievement:
Winning the 2001 OP Boat Challenge in Indo, and winning the Teahupoo event four times. Also, being able to stay grounded and not let the winning or the fame change me.
