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?
Stacey Guy: I can't think of just one thing but I did a lot of traveling, surfed some awesome waves! Made a few changes this year that worked out great, so I'm stoked!!

JG: Tell us about the first time you ever stood up on a surfboard. Where was it and what were you riding?
SG: I think the first time I stood on a surfboard was when I was about 14 years old...I started kinda late! I used to bodyboard, and when I got bored with that I took my dad's old surfboard down to the beach and stood on my first or second try!! The board I started on was SICK, it was a 5'5" pink twin fin with removable middle fin, it was so thick and had about 12 channels on the bottom! It was rad!

JG: What is your current favorite board? In 2009 do you have any plans to experiment with different surfboard designs, materials or fin configurations?
SG: I'm currently riding a 5'8" x 18 x 2 squash tail shaped by Baron Stander. I like boards that don't have a lot of rocker and that have a little vee in the tail...usually single concave! I've got a few single fins and twin fins in my garage for those small fun days.

JG: Do you have any heroes? If so, who and why?
SG: Hmmm, haha not really, maybe Dane Reynolds at the moment 'cuz his surfing is just amazing!

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?
SG: Wow, I'm not sure who will pull it but I reckon it will be some kind of massive air for sure!!

Image Caption: I've seen quite a few images of Stacey Guy lately and the common theme seems to be that her fins are never in the water. Fin free snaps, lipslides and big frontside airs are all part of this fantastically talented South African's approach. I hope one day to have the opportunity to shoot with her myself.
