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 !

Rock On: DIY Ombre Bookends

We are always looking for creative ways to update our space without spending a ton. Usually we turn to flea markets and second hand stores but we decided to experiment with a little DIY. Our ombre bookends are simple to do and make a huge statement. What you need: Rocks (preferable ones with a flat bottom so they stand upright) Any color spray paint (we love mixing metallic and a color) Cork pads and adhesive for the bottom of the rocks so they don’t scratch your bookshelf How you do it: 1. Start by scrubbing the rocks clean so the paint adheres well. 2. Spray the rocks. Keep a distance of approximately 4-6 inches so the paint does not drip. 3. Wait 5-8 hours for the paint to completely dry. Then add cord pads to the bottom. So simply and totally ROCKIN!

#MusicMonday || Goldroom

We are such huge fans of Goldroom's album "Embrace"! It sounds like a shimmery slice of laptop disco that isn't quite a dance ballad nor a full-on pop song. Instead, "Embrace" registers somewhere in between those two poles, with stereo beats amply orchestrated by tom-tom flourishes and well-placed synth ripples.    Listen Here :: http://bit.ly/1t6bMJe

Happy Bowls x Quincy Davis

A C A I….yes, some of you may have heard of this superfood, now found in almost every grocery store! High in antioxidants, amino acids and omega fatty acids, Acai wins the prize. Amino acids are vital for muscle contraction and regeneration…hint hint to all you athletes. This magical berry helps slow the aging process by boosting immune and metabolic function and removing destructive free radicals from our bodies. There are a wide range of Acai products on the market but we are honing in on the delicious Acai Bowls, from Happy Bowls in Montauk, New York. They basically take the highly nutritional pulp of the Acai Berry or Pitaya fruit and blend it with other fruit to create an incredibly thick smoothie…so thick you'll need a spoon to eat it. On top of that is granola, banana, strawberry and any other toppings from their 25 fresh fruit and nut selection. For Quincy Davis, Acai is her superfood!  She says, 'It's the perfect after surf snack…or even before because it's not too heavy. Being that I'm active every day, I need to fuel up with food that keeps me going, and Happy Bowls always does that! And it tastes so good!" Quincy's favorite bowl from Happy Bowls? "PB&J Bowl because there is peanut butter in it and I have a slight obsession!" Follow their journey here…but beware…It will leave you watering at the mouth. @happybowls
