JettyGirl: A one million dollar check arrives in your mailbox with a note that reads, "Half of this amount is yours and the other half is to benefit the world around you." How would you spend the money?
Linda Benson: There are so many good choices, but I’d sure like to help the trash vortex in the Pacific.

JG: Describe the best surfboard you've ever ridden and why it was special to you.
Linda: My very first board that my Dad let me buy for $20. It was an 8'6" water logged balsa. It was re-shaped into an 8' "Pig" board. The reason it gets the #1 spot is because it took me into a world and life that has given me more than words could ever say or describe.

JG: If you could travel back to any time in history and hang with one person while they go about their daily activities, who would it be and why?
Linda: My mother or father.

JG: For thirty days you're stuck on a desert island with one book, one song, one surf movie and one snack food. Which ones would you choose?
Linda: Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin. Imagine by John Lennon. Five Summer Stories, MacGillivray/Freeman. Rice crackers and hummus.

JG: What is your best surf-related memory of 2009?
Linda: A particularly good ride on my 9' Takayama SUP at Cardiff Reef.
