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 !

Freesurf at Banzai Pipeline Highlights!
It's a FACT: North Shore of Oahu has been firing all season long and Pipeline and Backdoor have been the number one places to be, the creams of the crops, the rolls royces of breaks, if you will. Whether it was the Volcom Pipe Pro, huge swells pounding the island every couple weeks, Jaws going off, or the 31st annual in Memory of Eddie Aikau at Waimea, every top surfer from Cali to Japan showed up at Pipe this season to score the waves of their lives. Red Bull TV decided to take advantage of this season's circus and asked Volcom if they could set up their camera equipment directly in front of Pipeline at the Volcom Pipe House for a day to stream live freesurf footage during an epic day of surf. That epic day of surf was a gift to men all around the world: Valentine's Day, February 14. While the lucky few got a chance to surf Pipe that day, most of us sitting behind a computer or cramned into a lifeless cubicle got the chance to witness all the action unfold live on the web. Don't worry, in case you missed it (which you probably did because your boss or girlfriend wouldn't allow such a thing), we have all the highlights for you below - ENJOY!
