What do you love most about being a pro surfer, and what's the toughest part?
I love being able to travel the world doing something I love! There are a lot of obligations that make the job hard but at the end of the day no matter what I remind myself I am having fun doing my job, so in love :)

How do you mentally prepare yourself for a contest?
I don't like to mentally overdo myself so I try to take it lightly. There are several things I must do before events - sleep early, eat light, surf the contest site before the event...and I think just doing those few things get me into the mindset that I am ready. It's all about my surfing on the day and not anyone else's in the heat.

How do you describe your surfing style?
I hope my style of surfing comes across as grateful, powerful and progressive. I mean, that is what I am for for sure. Haha!

What do you like to do during your down time (when you're not surfing)?
When I'm not surfing - well it depends on where I am. During an event anywhere in the world I take it super mellow...probably spend more time than ever watching TV show, on Skype or taking it easy laughing all days with friends between free surfs. I don't like to over exert too much energy on off days during an event. Not during an event/at home between surfs I enjoy doing anything active - I can't not be doing something active for too long.

How long have you been on the women;s tour and how enjoyable is it?
I've been on tour now for five years and it's been one heck of a ride! I've learned so much ever since graduating high school and living my life on tour - traveling, learning to lose, learning to win, work with media, compete continuously and still be human!!! It is very enjoyable being able to surf around the world on such a platform that ASP gives us!

What's more inspiring to you at this moment, love and happiness or money and fame?
Love and happiness!!! Because with that comes success, which leads to money and fame I guess? And even if that philosophy of mine is incorrect, who needs money and fame when they've got happiness??!

What charities are you involved in?
The Boys and Girls Club of Hawaii. Such an amazing organization - it simply gives kids another place they belong. I love being someone younger kids can spend time with and look up to because I am one who was always so driven and inspired by others, whether it be someone I watched on movies or got to meet and actually hang around! I want to be that positive influence that helps the kids believe in their potential. That's all it really takes :)

Is there any place in the world you have not yet surfed but have always wanted to?
Tahiti! It's only five hours away form my home I don't know how I haven't been yet!!

What's the secret to your fit body?
Everything in moderation! I am an athlete so I treat my body like one. I eat proper meals - try my best to limit sweets and what isn't good for me but I am also human so I've learned.. "everything in moderation!" I also believe in doing something active every day - if I don't surf I definitely have to make up for it somewhere else, but I think that's also my personality. I've also just realized how much I am beginning to like yoga!

Fancy restaurant or local night club?
Fancy restaurant! I am all about good food!

What makes Volcom Women's so unique?
Volcom Women's is so unique because it covers every aspect of women's fashion - it's edgy, it can be very girly, athletic, fancy, casual and fun!!!

What do you wan the girls out there reading to never forget?
Hold your ground for what you believe in, be passionate in all you do, always remember there is someone out there to make proud, and never ever...for any reason, lose your dignity!!!

Interview with Coco Ho
We had a chance to catch up with our surf rockstar, Coco Ho, and ask her some questions. Here's what our girl had to say... Which waves/ spots currently on tour best showcase a surfers potential? I think different waves/locations on tour show strengths and weaknesses for every individual, but it seems every year the divide gets smaller and smaller, every surfer on tour these days is so well rounded in all types of waves and locations. Is there a wave that better showcases women’s vs mens?  Men definitely shine in waves of consequence like Tahiti and Pipeline and the women have really been stepping it up and showing the world how good they are at waves like Snapper and Bells. I think having events together the women have learned a lot from the men's tour in regards to innovative and progressive surfing in heats. These days it's not uncommon to see women throwing down big combos and airs in heats.  Name the most impressive moment on tour that’s happened so far this year (mens or women’s)? To be honest the most impressive moment would have to be what happened in the final at J-Bay. Impressive to see that another competitor, in this case Julian Wilson, putting their own life in jeopardy to save another competitor. This showcased how deep all the men and women's friendships are on this tour. To be put in a situation like that and what their natural instincts were in that moment - that's true heroism and that to me is the most impressive moment in surf to date, period. What is one note/ word of encouragement or advice you give to every single person you work with?  "POSITIVE reinforcement” I really want to instil in every surfer I work with a very strong self belief in their ability, no matter what the conditions are like or what score they need. That trust needs to come from them being confident in their own decision making. Having good preparation and sticking to a solid routine will see you compete at your best….. Training, do you do it? Ratio of training to actual surfing?  Yes train the body and the mind.  The tour is gruelling and you need to stay on top of your health if you are going to succeed also eating heathy is a must. Actual surfing is the best training you can do, but to get the edge then you need to work hard whether it be full on gym sessions, Swimming, Yoga etc   …….. "hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard” Name three toughest waves on tour to wire?  The Box (Margaret River), Chopes ( Tahiti), Pipeline (Hawaii) The three most fierce women’s competitors on the tour right now?  Sally Fitzgibbons, Carissa Moore and Courtney Conlogue

Boarding For Breast Cancer
To us, boarding isn’t just a weekend activity or momentary thrill. It brings us a sense of freedom, but more importantly a healthy and active lifestyle. These are also the building blocks of B4BC-Boarding for Breast Cancer, a non-profit foundation that brings awareness, education, support, and early-prevention to individuals and communities. Their ultimate vision is to celebrate life at every turn, both on and off a board and to inspire youth into positive styles of living. Today we get to talk to our snowboard team rider Elena Hight, who is a B4BC Snow Ambassador, along with Coco Ho, our surf team rider. How long have you been affiliated with B4BC? Elena: I have been an ambassador for B4BC for about 3 years. Out of all the organizations , why have joined this on? What attracted you to B4BC? Elena: I was attracted to B4BC because of their mission to not only educate young people about breast cancer and how it can effect them, but how B4BC believes that preventing breast cancer begins with living a healthy, active lifestyle. I truly believe that living a healthy, active lifestyle is the key to fighting so many diseases that can negatively effect our health, so I was very excited to partner with an organization that is actively spreading that message. Has breast cancer effected anyone close to you? Elena: I have been lucky enough to not have been effected by breast cancer in my lifetime yet. Name one female in the world you look up to/highly respect and why? Elena: I am extremely inspired by Serena and Venus Williams. They both overcame so much adversity to become the incredible worldwide known athletes they are today. I think its very admirable how they have taken their athletic careers to the next level and inspire women today on so many levels. Which female in the world do you look up to and highly respect? Coco: Thats so hard to choose! Beyonce and/or Sharapova for a lot of the same reasons- I love their style in what they do (simply the best!) Their ambition and passion for winning or being the best is present but not over bearing. They are stylish and super feminine when the time is right. They live their lives publicly in the most professional way. The perfect girls in my eyes.   Because no style makes you feel as good as one that’s created for a good cause, Volcom snow has partnered up with Boarding for Breast Cancer to offer our limited edition outerwear. Not only do these exclusive pieces include a unique B4BC print specifically designed to raise awareness, we will support your purchase by donating $1 to the foundation for each garment sold. It’s a simple way to make your day on the hill that much more meaningful. Shop the Astrid Gore-Tex Jacket here: http://bit.ly/Zodxpg

Here we are in the middle of the Swatch Pro Contest. This event is stop No. 7 on the 2014 Women's Championship Tour. Not only is this event an important stop in finding this year's world surfing crown, but an opportunity for surfers to gain vital points towards re-qualification. Our girl, Coco Ho pulled through in the non-elimination Round 3 of the Swatch Pro Trestles Event last Wednesday. Coco had the lead until Carissa Moore reeled a big 8.97. In the last moments Ho scored a wave that gave her the win by only a few hundredths of a point, advancing her to the Quarterfinals. We're rooting for you Coco ! ! !

VOLCOM x SURFLINE PARTY
Last Friday we capped off the final weekend of the US Open with a VIP balcony party at the Surlfine headquarters in downtown Huntington Beach. It was a hangout of epic proportions with friends like Coco Ho, Quincy Davis, Maud Le Car and Dax McGill relaxing in our outside lounge and surf room. Speaking of surf room, photographers Willie Kessel, Brian Bielmann, Tom Carey and JCK Photos showcased their work featuring our team riders.  Tacos, Pacifico beer, Banzai Acai bowls and fresh Suja cocktails were huge hits. By the time the band came on, the vibes were flowing in our Volcom Women’s lounge; a spot for our Volcom family to escape the crowds while still feeling apart of the action down below. It was a great night all around, thanks to our guests and the huge support from Surfline! Volcom Women's Outdoor Lounge Photo collage by Willie Kessel, Brian Bielmann, Tom Carey and JCK Photos.
