Tell us about an intense or fun surfing memory

I can remember the first time I stood up on my Zuma Jay Twin fin in the 3rd point malibu reform. I don’t think it was long, but I still remember!

Tell us something unique about you as a mother who surfs with/without your kiddos

This year, my son, Odin, has really gotten into the ocean. I think the super warm wetsuit helps. He wasn’t all that excited to surf for a while. I have just tried to keep it fun and familiar to him. All of a sudden it clicked, and he’s pretty stoked. Which also means more water time for Mom! But really, its so sweet sharing the joys of the ocean with him and it re-kindles my stoke.

What is your most memorable surf moment with your kids?

snorkeling in the current yesterday with Odin. Pretty fun also going Tandem with his wave bandit on the front. He likes to jump off and catch the same wave next to me.

What are some challenges of surfing related to motherhood?

Learning to declare my time for it instead of happening into it.
