“Be careful what you water your dreams with. Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream. Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success. Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success. Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream” Lao Tzu



What are you doing to help keep the water clean:
Be the change you wish to see. Eat more plants. As a vegan, I don’t take part in animal agriculture which is major source of water pollution around the world. Find and support local veggie farmers. Vote with your $$ to support businesses that do right by our waterways. And of course all the lil stuff is important too like a daily ‘pocket of plastic challenge’ goes a long way. Simple stuff like asking for your drink ‘topless’ is a fun way to reduce plastic consumption.

Why did you choose Starboard:
Starboard has the best team that is constantly pushing the limits and making the world’s best boards. I also admire their efforts and commitments to not only reduce production impact but actually improve environmental and social conditions.

What do you do when you are not paddling:
I love swimming in surf and playing with the camera. My husband and I stay busy doing photos and video for StarShot Media.

Anything you want to tell us:
These boards are so incredibly strong and light! They ride like a dream. You can definitely feel all the good energy that is put into making them.
