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?
Sam Haddad: Obama, Obama, Obama, Obama, Obama!!

JG: Tell us about the first time you ever stood up on a surfboard. Where was it and what were you riding?
SH: I was about 16 on my first parent-free holiday to Newquay, Cornwall. It was amazing but for some insane reason I didn't do it again for another 10 years.

JG: What is your current favorite board? In 2009 do you have any plans to experiment with different surfboard designs, materials or fin configurations?
SH: I just have a 7'6" mini mal but I rode a 9ft longboard last summer and loved it. It was so light, it was like I was floating on air.

JG: Do you have any heroes? If so, who and why?
SH: Nah – "never try to be anything other than yourself and try to be that perfectly."

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?
Carissa Moore is gonna rip it up.
