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?
Claire Bevilacqua: The best thing for me in 2008 was winter in Hawaii...the most progressive surfing I have ever done.

JG: Tell us about the first time you ever stood up on a surfboard. Where was it and what were you riding?
CB: I was riding a surfboard I found in the trash, and it was out in front of my house in Perth.

JG: What is your current favorite board? In 2009 do you have any plans to experiment with different surfboard designs, materials or fin configurations?
CB: I just want to ride any good board that helps me surf better. I love my 5'10" x 17.75 x 2.1. It's a step-up for when the waves get chunky and it's perfect for tube riding.

JG: Do you have any heroes? If so, who and why?
CB: My mum is my hero, she is the most well-rounded, loveable human I know.

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?
CB: I think that KK will ride the biggest/gnarliest wave by a chick ever.

Image Caption: The first international surfer to take a chance with JettyGirl was Western Australia's wild child, Claire Bevilacqua. Bevo has offered me words of encouragement, a good heckling when it's been needed and has shared a whole lot of laughter. She's amazingly creative in the water and is surely on the short list of the most progressive female surfers in the world. One of my favorite air surfers around...Claire routinely turns the unmakeable into the unbelievable. Photo: Chris Grant / JettyGirl.com
