This year has been so much fun regardless of my results. Through some of the tough losses Ive learned more than I have in the past couple years. That’s why I love competing — the chance to learn is always there, win or lose. I love the drive to win you get from a loss. I feel like I’m more driven to win than ever from this year. Unfortunately I hurt my knee during a freesurf here in Bali, and I have to pull out of the next event to get back and heal up as quickly as possible. I was trying bottom turns in the yard last night to see if there is any way for me to possibly surf this event, but nothing about it felt right. Haha! I think it’s best I heal 100% before I get back in the water. When I was a little kid I watched my favorite surfers winning events and trying big airs and big maneuvers and dreamed of doing those things. I will never lose that. I’m excited for everything to come. I hope to come out of this injury smarter and more excited than I have ever been.
We have had incredible opportunities to explore new parts of the ocean this year. Beautiful places that are completely remote. The more we sail and explore, the more we realize how much plastic is out there. It's not going away on its own, I guess that's the bad news. But the good news is that every one of us has the chance to do something about it. Simple things like carrying a reusable water bottle, and avoiding single use plastics (we saw a ton of straws in this cave), and then just taking some time to clean up the places we enjoy. We were inspired on this trip by all the groups who are finding ways to be part of the solution. 🌎💡. 🎥 @parallelsea - @theoceancleanup @2minutebeachclean @take3forthesea @surfrider @5gyres @sustainablecoastlineshawaii @kokuahawaiifoundation #getoutthereandlearn
Happy birthday mom!! Thank you for being the most inspiring person in my life! Watching you paddle out at big pipe on your longboard when I was young to today where your charging down mountains doing airs snowboarding and skating bowls. I can thank you enough for everything you have done for me and my brothers. I love you! @alexandra_florence
