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?
To believe in your own dream and never give up. You girls are all special and amazing so go big, have fun and be happy !

Lady Grouplove DIY
Our Lady Grouplove Collection has inspired us in so many ways to be creative and artistic. For this DIY, we reached inside ourselves to find our “artistic abilities” and used those creative juices to make these rad LGL inspired pots. Here’s what you need Spray Paint (we used white and black based on the collection) Multiple pots in different sizes Acrylic paint (white and black) Very small and thin paint brush This project is best done outdoors. Make sure you have a smooth surface to work on. Lay down some newspaper or anything lying around so as not to get spray paint on anything. To help get every inch of the pot evenly sprayed, place a brick or plank of wood down and place the pot on top. Spray the pot at least 10 inches away from the pot and lightly coat with color. You want even layers so as not to make drip marks on the pot. Once you’ve completed spray painting the outside of the pot, let it dry for a few minutes. Once dry, place the pot right side up on the table and spray paint the inside.  Set aside and let dry overnight. Start on your next pot. This time using black spray paint and repeat the steps before. Once all of your pots have dried, you can start the painting process! For this part, we went to volcom.com/ladygrouplove and looked at which pieces we wanted to recreate. Not every paint stroke was perfect, but we felt it added charm and once it was all finished it looked great! Our Tip:: Go slowly. Sometimes the paintbrush has a mind of its own, so if you want straight lines, take your time. The finished product! Shop the pieces that inspired this post!

Volcom Womens x Lady Grouplove Collection
After 4 years of touring, Hannah Hooper from Grouplove emptied her suitcase on the table for the Volcom Womens design team. Three hours later the team of women had the beginnings of what would become the inspiration for the Lady Grouplove for Volcom product collaboration... Volcom Womens is proud to present an exclusive design collaboration with musician, Hannah Hooper of Grouplove: the "Lady Grouplove for Volcom" Collection. In partnership between the brand and musician the collection offers an eclectic array of easy to wear styles. Ranging from denim jackets to matching crop top and leggings, the collection is highly reminiscent of Hooper's unique and distant stage costumes. Largely incorporating the musician's artwork on the designs - Lady Grouplove for Volcom is an authentic blend of music and fashion. "What made this collaboration special was that Hannah Hoooper shared her favorite pieces from the road and together we drew inspiration for what would become Lady Grouplove for Volcom," shares Kristy Michaels, Volcom Global Design Director. Hooper adds, "I really feel like we made something that I can identify with and most important a line I can wear. I felt right at home with the Volcom ladies so the Lady Grouplove for Volcom line cam together pretty effortlessly." The collection is available nationwide for purchase on June 15th at Volcom stores, Volcom.com, Tilly's locations, Tillys.com and retailers where Volcom is sold. To celebrate the launch of the collection, Grouplove will be performing at the select Tilly's locations below. PROMOTIONAL PERFORMANCES: June, 27th, Tilly's store Long Beach June 28th, Tilly's store Irvine Spectrum ABOUT VOLCOM: Volcom was founded in 1991 on the belief that there is a higher level of consciousness to be found within one's self through the internal and external journeys that board-sports, music, art and film provide. The company prides itself on making quality apparel, outerwear, footwear and accessories that not only exemplify the lifestyle, but also enhance the ability to live it. By being the first to combine surfing, skating and snowboarding under one brand from inception a new future was forged and a generation of liberation was born. For over two decades Volcom has been TRUE TO THIS... the quest for Spiritual Intoxication. ABOUT GROUPLOVE: Grouplove first came together in 2009 and soon were hailed as a great live act, both as headliners and at such international festivals as Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Reading + Leeds Festivals, and Glastonbury. “NEVER TRUST A HAPPY SONG” arrived in 2011, making a stellar chart debut among the top 5 on Billboard’s “Heatseekers” album chart for new and developing acts. The acclaimed album was highlighted by the debut single, “Colours” which received critical acclaim and climbed to the top reaches at Alternative radio outlets nationwide. “Tongue Tied,” the second single from “NEVER TRUST A HAPPY SONG,” proved an even greater success, earning RIAA platinum certification for sales in excess of 1 million while spending 3 consecutive weeks at #1 on the Alternative airplay chart.  The third single, “Itchin’ On A Photograph” also reached the Top 10 at Alternative radio.  The quintet’s second full length album “SPREADING RUMOURS” arrived in September 2013 and was met with a raft of acclaim from the likes of Rolling Stone, USA Today, Entertainment Weekly, Los Angeles Times, NYLON, and National Public Radio who called it “ludicrously easy to love.” Grouplove is Christian Zucconi, Hannah Hooper, Andrew Wessen and Ryan Rabin Shop the Collection

DIY ++ Fringe Wall Art
Lately, the ladies at Volcom Womens headquarters have been inspired by anything and everything DIY.  The experience of creating something entirely from scratch really gives one a great sense of accomplishment & pride. Well, that’s how we feel anyway. This project is a DIY beginners dream. It’s easy, cheap & will make that boring space on your wall pop with color! What you need :: Yarn – Variety of colors Scissors Dowel or a tree branch Push pins or a hook Wire Step one ::  Cut a piece of yarn the length you want it to hang and double it. Step two :: Start by folding the yarn in half and looping the end. Bring the loop to the dowel. Step three :: Loop the yarn through the rounded side completely + tighten it once looped. Step four ::  Keep repeating with the same color of yarn until you want to switch to a different color. Step five :: Once you’ve finished with all of your colors, take your jewelry wire or thread and wrap it around the ends of the dowel to hang from the wall. Step six :: Hang the piece from your wall and take a look to see if you want to make any fun changes. We decided that we wanted to add a bit of dimension to ours so we cut it in a diagonal. You can choose any shape you’d like. Before After! The end product! We couldn’t be happier with our fabulous and easy fringe wall piece. Stay tuned for more DIY projects in the future. xo
