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?
Kaitlin Maguire: During the year 2008 I would say that having my family and friends around was the best thing that happened, being able to travel with them and enjoy some great waves is always a pleasure too.

JG: Tell us about the first time you ever stood up on a surfboard. Where was it and what were you riding?
KM: The first place I stood up on a surfboard is this shore break called Shipwrecks in Kauai. I would bodyboard there with my brother and we would stand up on our bodyboards. One day a guy asked me out of the blue if I wanted to try a surfboard, so I caught a wave and popped right up. Not sure what type of board it was, but after that I made my brother take me surfing a bunch. 

JG: What is your current favorite board? In 2009 do you have any plans to experiment with different surfboard designs, materials or fin configurations?
KM: My favorite board to ride is a high pro 9'0 Donald Takayama, I have no configurations or different board designs but I plan on trying to single fin more.

JG: Do you have any heroes? If so, who and why?
KM: My hero is my dad because he is a well rounded person. He has worked hard for what he wanted and one day I hope i can be as successful as him. Plus he's my dad and I love him. 

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?
KM: No Clue!!!!!!

Image Caption: This particular day was so fun. Kaitlin Maguire was out surfing with her friends Cole and Brett Robbins and they kept getting these little rights that would peel forever across the inside sandbar. I'm not sure what Kaitlin's goals are but she has the skills to be a world champ...she's fantastic on the nose, does an incredible backside off-the-lip, and has one of the best frontside cutbacks around.
