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?
Paige Hareb: Won the Margaret River WQS and qualified for the 2009 WCT. I'm hoping to have fun and kill it in 2009.

JG: Tell us about the first time you ever stood up on a surfboard. Where was it and what were you riding?
PH: My dad pushed me in on his 8ft mel. I was about 6 years old. I know I stood up and kept on wanting more. That's about all I remember.

JG: What is your current favorite board? In 2009 do you have any plans to experiment with different surfboard designs, materials or fin configurations?
PH: My standard board is a Mt Woodgee 5'7". I want to experiment more with smaller side fins, fish and swallow tails.

JG: Do you have any heroes? If so, who and why?
PH: Kelly, Layne and Steph...they're cool and they rip! And my parents for putting up with me!

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?
PH: Either Carissa Moore or Claire Bevilacqua and I think they will do a superwomen!!

Image Caption: Courtesy of Bevo this past summer, I was fortunate enough to meet Paige Hareb and her mom...both of whom are really cool people. After a strong year on the WQS, Paige has become the first New Zealand female surfer to qualify for the WCT. At year's end Paige received a wildcard into the Honolua 'CT and proceeded to blow minds with her unbelievable backhand attack on the famed Maui rights. Photo: Chris Grant / JettyGirl.com
