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?
Anna Garaway: 2008...I had a few good trips getting lost in Central America which always leaves me with a smile and some good stories, but I think going back to school has been the best and most challenging thing for me. For 2009 I'm hoping for more surf days during the school semester and I'm looking forward to all the changes to come. Be it good or bad, we are all in for an adventure.

JG: Tell us about the first time you ever stood up on a surfboard. Where was it and what were you riding?
AG: My first time surfing was for sure on a BZ Doyle at Cowells. Don't remember how old I was, but I do know I stood up because the guy teaching me was holding me up by the back of my wetsuit.

JG: What is your current favorite board? In 2009 do you have any plans to experiment with different surfboard designs, materials or fin configurations?
AG: Right now I'm riding a 5'11" SB that I really like. I'm thinking about ordering a 9'6" noserider from Carl Olsen, but that's just talk right now...may wait 'til summer for that!

JG: Do you have any heroes? If so, who and why?
AG: My heroes are the people who are the best at whatever it is they do. It takes a lot of hard work, training and discipline to get where they are.

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?
AG: I think it will be from Silvana Lima, Melanie Bartels or Coco Ho and it will be done during a World Tour contest. I'm not sure what it will be, but all three of them are exciting surfers to watch. Can't wait to see it when it happens ;)

She is warm, kind and has an amazing frontside snap. A true ambassador for women's surfing and a purveyor of stoke wherever she goes. Photo: Daniella Loureiro
