"If you are doing what you love then you're doing what is right. Desire and passion resonate with your body, mind and soul. When you're passionate you don't question, judge, criticize, second-guess, or doubt. It's that passion that will fuel the fire to overcome challenges."

"If you look at the media coverage and surfing magazines, the one thing that really stands out is how hard it is to find a photo of a girl in a magazine unless it's an ad. It's kind of strange, still to this day. You see these great looking girls surfing so well that are amazingly talented… They are finally the total package."

"You know what you're getting into with a male-dominated sport such as surfing, and everyone sort of knew me as the annoying little sister. …Just give it a go. I know it's simple but even when I was growing up, other girls were scared of what people would think. It's all about letting go of the inhibitions."
