What do you love most about being a pro surfer, and what's the toughest part?
The thing I love the most being a surfer pro is the lucky opportunity to live my passion and to travel in the all world and to discover countries, amazing waves and landscapes while spending my days in the water. I always wanted to be a pro surfer and I work so hard for it so I am proud today to be living my dreams. Being a pro surfer means making a lot of sacrifices like living far from my family and friends and focusing all the time on my goals.

How do you mentally prepare yourself for a contest?
I think it is most important to always do always your best, put all the chance on your side to succeed and to not have any regrets. I look at contests as a game; playing on the waves and trying to improve myself and my surfing in any kind of situation because surfing is my passion and something I love to do.

How do you describe your surfing style?
I think my surfing style is radical and engaged - sometimes a little bit aggressive.

What do you like to do during your down time (when you're not surfing)?
My second passion is art - I love to paint, spray and draw. I am painting a lot on surfboards, canvas's or skateboards recently to vary my creativity. I also did my first art show this summer!

How long have you been on the women's tour and how enjoyable is it?
I have been on the women's tour for three years and it sincerely get's better every year. Sometimes the contests make me nervous but i still have fun because surfing is something I love to do.

What's more inspiring to you at this moment, love and happiness or money and fame?
For sure love and happiness.

What charities are you involved in?
I am involved in Keep A Breast (Association against breast cancer). I recently painted a bust that is going to be sold to raise money for the association. In the future I would love to have my own association for the protection of the environment and the ocean.

Is there any place in the world you have not yet surfed but have always wanted to?
Mentawaii!!!

What's the secret to your fit body?
Eat raw and fresh food and always keep my body in action... have fun do sports.

Fancy restaurant or local night club?
Local night club!

What makes Volcom Women's so unique?
We are rocking!!! We are able to be natural and be completely ourself without complex

What do you wan the girls out there reading to never forget?

Cliff Notes | | Our Summer Reads

Whether you are road tripping up the coast, hanging at the beach, camping with friends or waking up from a late night, we compiled a few summer reads you can take along for the trip that are anything but boring. These books will inspire adventures, make you think and keep you entertained all summer long. Take your pick! Whatever You Think, Think the Opposite by Paul Arden This book will turn your world upside down. Arden proposes risk taking, creativity and making bad decisions… advice that resonates with any free spirit. His words will inspire you to think differently and make changes by doing all the supposed wrong things. In one of our favorite passages Arden writes, “Risks are a measure of people. People who won’t take them are trying to preserve what they have. People who do take them often end up having more.” WE AGREE. Read it, risk it and go get it! Available here! Just Kids by Patti Smith  In Just Kids, Patti Smith chronicles her relationship with photographer Robert Mapplethorpe and their life in New York in the 1960s and 70s. Poetically written, this book pays homage to Smith’s humble beginnings as a bohemian artist living in the Chelsea Hotel. We love Smith’s honesty and the fact that her innocence is relatable to anyone young and starting a journey of their own. Available here! A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan  This is a tale of short stories that are comprised into what Egan says is a novel. The tales revolve around an aging Rock music executive and his onetime assistant in addition to various other colorful characters. The stories shift in time and location but all reflect the importance of time and how it becomes a prison for many of the characters. We love this book because it lets us reflect on the past while reminding to embrace the present! Available here! Bad Monkey by Carl Hiaasen  Read this if you want to be entertained! We can’t even tell you the plot because there is not just one... there are about twenty. Same goes for the characters, which include a former Miami-Dade police detective and his new lover a county coroner, a Bahamian Voodoo witch, and a bad, bad monkey. This book is hilarious, clever and an adventure all wrapped in one. Available here!
