What’s an average day for you like? I work.. a lot! I always make time to work out during the week to strengthen my muscles to either surf, wake, or snowboard on the weekends depending on what season we are in.
What is the most difficult part of your activity/sports for a beginner? Difficult: Balance and using muscles you have never used before. It feels awkward, but strength training or weight lifting helps this process to be a lot easier for sure. The easiest part I would say is that if you are so stoked to learn something new, you will give your best to make it be a part of your life and happiness in general.
What is the best and worst thing about being female in your sport? Best: You get to meet a cool clique of other females in the sport and make friendships while riding together. You are constantly pushing each other to learn some new awesomeness. Worst: Close minded folks think you are a little nuts, which is lame. Enjoy your life and be proud of what you do. Other folks opinions don't matter.
What would you like to see change in your sport to make it better for you and other female athletes? Destroy the stereotypes of making extreme sports chicks look like supermodels. Every extreme sports girl is awesome in every single way.
Besides your ability and style factor as an athlete, how would you describe your personal style? Funky, unique, sporty, throw some swag in there too.
What are your favorite brands/designers for your sports apparel and for stepping out? Roxy, DC, Proteus, Elevated, Volcom, Hurley, and many others.
I bet in your experience you have seen some crazy crashes. Describe one. Haha I've had some of my own. Surfboard nose tip went in my head right above my eyebrow and eyebrow area. Thank goodness there is plastic surgery. Surfboard fun stabbed my right leg, got infected, was not fun with emergency surgery.
What usually gets people hooked on your activity/sport? Constant stoke and want to constantly learn new things. Boosts confidence.
What is your favorite trick? Surf: cutbacks and fun snaps with some spray.
Snow: Methods,180s, BS board slides with 180s out.
Wake: any grabs with shiftys, especially stalefish.
