“I’m stoked – this is like a dream event to win so I’m super pumped. The waves got a little weird with that wind and after I fell on that barrel I had to go to turns on my second to last wave. It was good to be able to change the plan and see it work out. To win this event as a goofy footer is a real feather in your cap.”
“This time last year was my first event back after one of the hardest times of my life, so I’m emotional. I’ve been super inspired by the younger girls and all the new energy on Tour. It’s been really cool. I haven’t won a CT since 2021, so I’m just super stoked. This is the best feeling ever.”
“You can’t wipe the smile off my face right now and to be sharing the podium with these amazing humans is an honor. It's a perfect wave, but it's really difficult to ride. It took a couple surfs to figure out the timing again and get to calm the nerves, but I just felt really good.”
“It was a crazy week and a crazy month being away from home, it’s a roller coaster, but, I really felt the love and the joy from this community and I want to say thank you because I couldn’t have done it without that good energy.”
“I’m super focused this year. I really want to give it my all and qualify. Winning this QS is just extra motivation for me, and to do it on my birthday is just special.”
“I’ve been visualizing this for the last three months, winning on my home turf couldn’t be any better and I’m just so happy that all the dedication and sacrifice I’ve put into this paid off.”
