Earliest Memory Shredding:

Surfing at the Menehune contest at 5 years old, where everyone got a trophy and goody bag full of stuff.

Best, funniest, or weirdest experience:

I was surfing a heat at Sunset Pt. and I took off on a set wave and fell, my bikini bottoms got ripped off of me. Luckily they were still on my leash, but I had to paddle all the way back out before I could put them back on or else I would have gotten worked. All my friends in the heat were laughing super hard and so was I. At least there were no photographers.
