"I'm not the biggest fan of contest surfing. I would rather free surf."

"With free surfing there's just no pressure. You get to do whatever you want and have fun."

"Contests are so much pressure. You have to snake people, make sure you don't fall, and you just get more stressed out."

"When you free surf, you get to go to exotic, beautiful places."

"For contest surfing, you always have to go to where they're going to draw the most crowds, and that's usually in cities."

"I feel like I can't even surf in a bikini because there's so much attention."

"I want to be known as a good surfer. I think it's fine if they think I'm pretty, too."

"I'm definitely going to give it my all this year."

"It'd be really cool to be back on the tour and give it another go, but if it doesn't happen, it doesn't happen. I won't be that bummed."
