Stretch or sweat?

Sweat! Stretching is too boring, I'm obsessed with Muy Thai and boxing. I just like hitting something! 

What song is on rotation right now to pump you up before a session?

Hmm, anything riri or Beyoncé!

Beach-ready beauty products you can't live without

It's a 10 for my hair and any sunscreen!

Article of clothing or accessory you take almost everywhere with you and why?

Well, I'm definitely gonna have to say my phone for an accessory! As for clothing there's probably not a day that goes by that I don’t throw a pair of denim cut off shorts in my car...if I'm not already leaving the house wearing them. Oh, and I'm always jeweled, with rings and bracelets (gold).

What fashion trend will we never catch you wearing?

I'd say my style is really tomboy, lazy, not girly at all. With that said, it's gonna be a special day to ever catch me looking like a fairy.

Who’s your style icon?

I'm loving Selena Gomez's look at the moment. Strong, edgy, straight bossy!

Pipeline or Waikiki?

Waikiki 100%! Who doesn't love maitais, Hawaiian music, and party waves!

Coffee or Cocktails?

Oh this is just a straight up rude question.... How could you ever expect me to choose? I'll have to go with coffee, sometimes cocktails make me too crazy!

Dream surf trip?

My family, my boyfriend, and my amigos on a huge boat in the Ments!!!!! Yep! Simple and perfect.

Stretch or sweat?

Definitely sweat. I love to run as much as I hate weights.

What song is on rotation right now to pump you up before a session?

Beyonce’s Lemonade. It’s dramatic and you feel like you know a little more about her and Jay Z’s relationship. And she’s a badass.

Beach-ready beauty products you can't live without.

It’s a 10 leave-in conditioner and Coola sunscreen.

Article of clothing or accessory you take almost everywhere with you and why?

My Nixon watch, because you always need to know what time it is and you want to do it with a little style; a pair or two of classic Vans; a hat, because you always need one when you get out of the water; and cute sunglasses.

What fashion trend will we never catch you wearing?

String-tied side bikinis – I don’t love the look AND they dig into your skin. Fail/fail.

Who’s your style icon?

I love the surf style of Stephanie Gilmour and Kelia. Style-wise, I am really into the look of retro swimsuits that are popping up everywhere right now.

Pipeline or Waikiki?

Waikiki. Definitely..

Coffee or Cocktails?

Coffee. Always coffee.

Dream surf trip?

Tahiti with my surf girlfriends.
