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?
Nikita Robb: I managed to get to Hawaii early and scored some pretty unreal waves with not many people out! I'm hoping that 2009 brings me good results and a spot on the 2010 WCT.

JG: Tell us about the first time you ever stood up on a surfboard. Where was it and what were you riding?
NR: The first time I stood up was on a really old Andrew Cater surfboard at Nahoon beach break!

JG: What is your current favorite board? In 2009 do you have any plans to experiment with different surfboard designs, materials or fin configurations?
NR: My favorite board at the moment is a 5'7 thruster by Derek Girven, a South African shaper. I have been enjoying surfing a twin fin diamond tail surfboard lately when the waves have been small. I always enjoy experimenting with boards, so I'm sure I will be finding something new to try out!

JG: Do you have any heroes? If so, who and why?
NR: I do have a few heroes, my friends Tammy-lee Smith, Rosy Hodge, Stacey Guy and Nikki Russell. Then, my parents for always being such great role models.

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?
NR: Silvana Lima doing a air 360.
