Surfer Girl ski, and he looked into my eyes and I just passed out. And the next thing I’m in the ambulance with my mom, and my dad met me at the hospital. My first concern was, “When can I surf again?” Obviously, it’s the first question after every single injury I’ve had. Breathtaking achievements I’ve been thinking that it’s not a bad thing having asthma if you surf big waves. Because one of the biggest challenges and fears of people when they go surfing is that they’ll be out of breath. But I was born out of breath, and that’s my struggle since then. I’ve been going to the hospital out of breath, passing out right before I get the thing on my mouth and start breathing again. So it’s a sensation I’ve had since I was really young, and I’ve dealt with it. I don’t panic when I’m underwater.Viral strain I had a serious virus a few weeks ago. I’m the type of person who can go from peak to peak and never have a slow energy day. But when I go down, I go down. I’ll call you from the hospital and let you know which emergency room I’m in. I was in Tahiti for a big swell, but I hadn’t surfed in 10 days and I had lost 10lbs (4.5kg). I spent the whole morning in the hospital, went home for lunch and threw up, like, seven times, and came back. I had my mom and dad in Rio on Skype in the hospital room and they were freaking out. And the nurse was like, “You can’t talk! You can’t talk!

Surfer Girl - The US Open is officially over! This past week I have been going a million miles a minute, from competing to press obligations, autograph signings, interviews, etc. It feels good to finally be able to breathe and slow down. Walk the Walk was absolutely fantastic. Five different high schools were given Converse, Nike and Hurley product to make a fashion skit. We judged them on creativity, product display, and the overall vibe of their performance. It was a pretty star studded judging panel I must say. I sat amongst Melissa Miller, Paul Rodriguez, Bob Hurley, Rob Machado, Vanessa Hudgens, just to name a few. Surfer Girl San Diego high ended up winning top honors and twenty five grand for their school. Congrats! The comp finished average for me. I ended up bowing out in the semis. Surfer Girl A little bit of a let down as I would have loved to have made the last final of the year. Even tho a world title wasn’t on the line at this event I still wanted to perform at my best and win. I don’t like losing but it is these moments that make us better, stronger and motivate us to greatness. I tweaked my shoulder a in my quarter final heat so I am a little handicap at the moment. Hoping it gets better quick because I hate the immobility. Surfer Girl Looks like I will be heading home on Tuesday! Seriously can’t wait .....
