Where did you grow up?
Between New York City and Montauk.
What age did you begin surfing?
Around 13—too late in my opinion; I wish I had started earlier!
Ditch Plains when it’s clean, 3 to 4 feet, and the water is warm.
Best surf moment?
When I saw my little sister catch her first wave.
How does surfing make you feel?
It’s a mental escape, almost like meditation with a side of dance-party fun.
Most successful surf moment?
When I surfed in high heels for one of my mom’s videos.
Do you supplement surfing with other forms of exercise? If so, what?
I’m a super-active person so I definitely mix it up. My New Year’s resolution this year was to be active every single day and so far I’ve been successful! I like Pilates, running, cycling and old-fashioned plyometrics in the gym.
What does a typical day of meals look like?
I maintain a pretty healthy lifestyle and I don’t eat dairy. A typical day might start with a green protein smoothie, with a veggie sandwich/salad for lunch and grilled fish for dinner. Yum!
Best health tip to stay energized?
If I’m feeling sleepy, adding matcha to my protein smoothies always gives me a little boost.
I love to steal my mom’s 10-foot Josh Hall. When the conditions aren’t stellar, it’s always fun to goof around on kook boards (foam boards my mom and I design together). “Go foam or go home!”
Favorite surf gear—wetsuit? swimsuit?
My favorite wetsuit is one my mom did a few seasons ago: It’s a fully metallic gold color.
Surf mantra/saying you love/live by?
When in doubt, paddle out!
