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?
Kyla Langen: Barack Obama, agave nectar, fleet foxes, Rio De Janeiro,  lemongrass, raw almond butter, garage band. For 2009 I hope for beats and beets.

JG: Tell us about the first time you ever stood up on a surfboard. Where was it and what were you riding?
KL: I don't remember, but my parents told me it was in front of my Grandma's house in Carlsbad...on my dad's Rusty thruster he made into a twin-fin after breaking off the tail.

JG: What is your current favorite board? In 2009 do you have any plans to experiment with different surfboard designs, materials or fin configurations?
KL: I'm loving my 5'9" TPatterson single fin. And I'm curious about wood.

JG: Do you have any heroes? If so, who and why?
KL: Tug the cat: Lives a simple, healthy, happy life. Entertains herself by climbing trees, stretching, meditating, and loving. Also, Chris Sharma. 

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?
KL: Sarah Beardmore doing some crazy windmill or jackhammer breakdance maneuver on some foreign dance floor.

Image Caption: Straight away, JettyGirl wouldn't have lifted off the ground without the support of Kyla Langen. Her skills as a writer and interviewer, along with her world-class talents on a surfboard, brought immediate legitimacy to our fledgling project. One of my all-time favorite photo subjects, Kyla has a huge future in whatever path she chooses to take in life. Photo: Chris Grant / JettyGirl.com
