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?
Kym Campbell: I released my debut album 'So Alive' mid-2008 so that was definitely a highlight for me, as well as having 4 tracks from my album included on Australia Longboarding Magazine's 'Project X' surf DVD. What I'm probably most hopeful for next year is to release the album in Japan and do a national tour in Australia. I love traveling!

JG: Tell us about the first time you ever stood up on a surfboard. Where was it and what were you riding?
KC: The first time I stood up on a surfboard I was surfing out front of my house in Miami on the Gold Coast, Australia. I was riding a 6'10 Mini Malibu and I was super stoked!!

JG: What is your current favorite board? In 2009 do you have any plans to experiment with different surfboard designs, materials or fin configurations?
KC: At the moment I mostly ride my 6'1 shortboard with a rounded square tail. But I'm headed for Bali for Christmas so I might take a couple other sizes as well. If I have enough money next year I would love to get another fish shortboard shaped and also start riding some single fin boards.

JG: Do you have any heroes? If so, who and why?
KC: I have a lot of heroes but for 2008 I think my mom would have to be number one, she has been such a great support throughout my music career and she has always supported me in following my dreams. I think Tristan Prettyman would come next - I am just loving her music at the moment and she is such an inspiration to me as a musician.

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?
KC: I would say Melanie Bartels for sure. She has such a cool style!
