JettyGirl: While faltering economies, political turmoil and energy issues dominated most of the headlines during the past year, much of 2008's good news slipped through the cracks. What's the best thing that happened to you in 2008 and what are you most hopeful for in 2009?
Amee Donohoe: Best thing was realizing that I wasn't affected by the economics of the world...when you've got nothing you can't lose anything. I'm hoping that the world will stand up and see the destructive way we are living needs to change.

JG: Tell us about the first time you ever stood up on a surfboard. Where was it and what were you riding?
AD: I was about 7 and it was on a boogie board at my local Macmasters Beach on the central coast.

JG: What is your current favorite board? In 2009 do you have any plans to experiment with different surfboard designs, materials or fin configurations?
AD: I snapped my favorite diverse board in France. I've been playing around with fins lately in Hawaii. I've been getting into riding some solid retro boards, a few single fins, twinnies and quads...always fun to mix it up. I've even looked into getting one of those planks of wood.

JG: Do you have any heroes? If so, who and why?
AD: Superman is cool. I like the suit...I feel pretty hot getting into tight lycra.

JG: In 2009 we'll see the best single maneuver ever done by a female surfer. Who do you think will pull the move and what do you think it will be?
AD: Silvana Lima, superman suit and all!

Image Caption: Last year I had the privilege of shooting with Amee Donohoe a few times. This fantastic Australian surfer has such an insane layback snap...an effortless, tail-free, pivot-around-a-buried-nose type of turn that she pulls off with ease. Although our schedules didn't align this year, I look forward to shooting with Amee again. She's super funny, uber-intelligent and just plain rips. Photo: Chris Grant / JettyGirl.com
