This year I qualified for the Women’s World Tour So I’m pretty much now until next year gonna be training really hard Just this past year I’ve been really getting into cross training And it’s actually something I really like to do – pushing myself and it makes me more confident in my surfing It’s pretty amazing how this year on the North Shore, every house at Pipeline has a little training regimen It’s good to see it’s actually taking it that way where it’s actually a athletic sport Than more of a lifestyle sport. It’s a physical and a mental part of the game, because when you do the hard work in the gym then you go into the water, then you know you’ve done the work – and you’re that much more confident. It’s time to put it on the line, and it’s about you, the ocean, and time. It’s not about who you’re surfing against I definitely want to do good, this year, and I definitely want to show people I can surf. But I want to do good in contests for myself not for anyone else. We’re all gonna go surfing, usually it’s a mellow place. Not too many pros out, and we rock up and pretty much every pro is out, like Kelly and Sean Moody, and I think Shane Doherty was out too. You just never know over here. There could be 20 pros out, it can get a little intimidating. It looks really fun, but a bunch of guys just paddled out. It always sucks when there’s good guys out. Well I mean it’s really cool to see but, then they pretty much catch every wave. So, you know, just like Kelly Slater… Us girls were very intimidated after we walked onto the beach just because Sometimes I think we’re a joke, but you just kinda have to block that out of your mind and go have fun. I always try to go wherever the crowd is a little more mellow because it gets hectic out here. The whole different story from pretty much everywhere else, because every surfer that’s, you know, good, is surfing and everyone wants a wave. Everyone wants your wave. Everyone wants to be catching the most waves. It’s cool to be out there at the same time because you really see how… Kelly is like constantly moving and he’s constantly catching waves So it puts a new perspective on how to free surf, I guess. So in tune with the water, and he just has the knowledge – and you can see it in his eyes. To be right there is a cool thing. We just surfed with Kelly Slater, and Alana Blanchard. It was a good surf session for me and Leila. It was fun. Surfing just makes us happy, it’s really weird.
