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?
Serena Brooke: The best thing that happened to me in 2008 was waking up each day and going surfing! For 2009 my wishes are that the world continues to readjust itself and evens out its resources making the greedy ones responsible for their actions and that there is more love and peace spread instead of fear and greed.

JG: Tell us about the first time you ever stood up on a surfboard. Where was it and what were you riding?
SB: I was surfing across the road from my house, I was about 14 years old and I was riding an old single fin about 6'6" long. 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?
SB: My current fav board is a Nick Blair 5'10x 17 7/8ths x 2/1/16th. Yes, in 2009 I will try some fun boards. I want to ride an alaia and a few other funky boards.

JG: Do you have any heroes? If so, who and why?
SB: I don't really have any heroes but I look up to whoever is having the most fun on tour this year...and that's probably been Steff!

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?
SB: I think Carrissa Moore will do some crazy air or Sally Fitz, she was doing some cool airs on our boat trip.

Image Caption: Airs, flips, twists...they're all fun. Still, there's something to be said for a nice clean wrap off the incoming section. Serena Brooke on the first wave of our only session this summer, a whopping 30-minute surf in onshore Oceanside. Serena has been one of my favorite surfers since I saw her at Lowers early in her career. A decade or so later, she's still turning heads. Photo: Chris Grant /
