What does SheShredsCo mean to you?
SheShredsCo helps to show people that girls can do anything they want. The company also supports girls getting out there and following their dreams. I love being able to see other girls getting out and being adventurous. SheShredsCo is a place I can share my dreams and also get support from others. It is a kind of community and it is really cool.
What challenges do you face being a female in the sport?
Surfing has been known as a guys sport. Even the pro surf competitions are mostly about men surfers. So, I guess one challenge girls face in surfing is just being accepted as good surfers. There are a lot of great girl surfers out there. CoCo Ho and Sage Erickson are two of my favorites. There are girls surfing competitions, but they are not as promoted as the guys. I think that the girl surfers deserve the respect and attention that men surfers get. Because girls can rock at surfing.
Where is the most unusual place you have done your sport?
My favorite was Costa Rica. I was able to get some nice long rides and it is a beautiful place too!
What has been your most memorable moment so far?
My most memorable moments are times spent surfing with my dad and brother. My brother is my coach and he helps me learn more about surfing while having a good time too. One of the coolest things that ever happened was during an early morning surf session in New Smyrna Beach when we were surfing with dolphins by us. That was pretty awesome.
Who/what are your inspirations?
I love to watch videos of Coco Ho and Sage Erickson. They are both USA surfers. Sage Erickson is just a really great girl that loves her sport and loves life. Coco Ho really works to inspire girls to follow their dreams. She has a great style of surfing that seems so effortless and fun for her. Both surfers have a great love for the sport and are really good. They have good values and they work to promote girls in the industry.
Favorite thing about SheShreds products?
SheShreds products are just cool! Whenever I wear them I feel proud to be representing a company that is working to inspire girls. The clothes are comfortable and look great too. When I wear my SheShreds stuff people will ask me about what SheShreds is. It is cool because I can help tell people that girls can do anything. I love going to the beach and having stickers, hair bands, and other SheShreds stuff that I can pass out to girls I see surfing.
