My main inspirations in surfing , as a girl I would say, Kassia Meador , and in the boys gang , George Greenough , Marc Cunningham , Al knost , Joel Tudor …

When you were a child, and you started surfing, what inspired you? tell as your story

My main inspiration to start surfing were the other girl surfers that I saw surfing around me and having so much fun .. Then when I grew up as a teenager they came to me and brought me everywhere .. I really understood everything I needed to learn about traveling, boards and equipment .. still learning nowadays .

Which surf magazine and video have you watched the most?

I loved surfers journal and looking into art reviews … some of them included surfing .

It ́s said that a surfer becomes a surfer when starts traveling, visiting new countries and getting to know new cultures. Do you remember your first trip?

After a few trips to Spain , my real first surf trip came when I left home to go live in Cali with my mentor Kassia Meador for three months.

Who are your favorite surfers nowadays? The most interesting?

I still look up a lot to Kass , I hang out with a very talented surfer lady called Erin Ashley during my stays in California as well … and all the guys that surf alternative boards and mostly have fun on it , shape dust it off and go surf it .

Which is your everyday board and fin?

My everyday board is either a noserider or a good classic but faster log both between 9’2 and 9′

What kind of board, fins or type of surfing do you want to try next?

I would love to learn more into fun boards , I`ve been having a lot of fun the last couple years but I want to improve myself , I have a couple paipos at home aswell that I want to ride in really speedy but small shallow waves …



What does progression in surfing means to you?

It means getting there without getting bored out of it .. learning that when you get bored of a board or a wave , move on and change the scene for a week you will feel so happy to be back on it after that. Stay a child as long as it belongs to the beach and the waves (;

Where do you want to see yourself in 10 years?

Somewhere I will call home and doing things that make me satisfied !
