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?
Chanelle Sladics: Great question! Some of the money would go towards a house on the North Shore of Oahu, and some towards my current mortgage in North County San Diego. I would get solar panels, and go off the grid as much as possible! The charity portion would go completely towards a charity I am currently starting. More info will soon be available as I am in the process of trademarking but I will release our mission: To bring awareness to kids and teens about the circle of life, teaching them the necessities in preserving our planet, the value and process of recycling and composting, and how to grow food naturally! Our mission is to utilize influential people (Professional Athletes, Artists, Musicians, Actors) of the community to adopt their local school, ultimately sweeping our nation into a new standard of education, one where we are connected to our food, and our environment—Planet Earth.

JG: Describe the best surfboard you've ever ridden and why it was special to you.
Chanelle: Mmm, probably one of Megan Abubo's boards! She works with her shaper to make some magic boards! I really love my last 5'9" that I traded with her! Also adopted my own taceama (spelling)...the board is magic for poopy Cali days... 5'4", wide, quad fin, huge squash tail equals magic. I also have to say that I am excited for my new SUP paddle from Jodie Nelson this coming summer...she got me hooked!

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?
Chanelle: John Lennon ...I would love to be a part of his peace movements, uniting humanity through music, and around intelligent, connected souls who love the earth we live on, want to protect it, and our rights!

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?
Chanelle: I'm going to assume there are coconuts on the island, in order for me to survive. Book: Intelligence by Osho; Song: Jack Johnson's Banana Pancakes; Surf movie: definitely Sipping Jetstreams, Snow movie: That's It, That's All; Snack food: bananas.

JG: What is your best surf-related memory of 2009?
Chanelle: Last summer I didn't get too crazy in the water, though I did spend some quality time surfing Pipeline when it was small, thanks to Claire, Rochelle, and Leah! I finally started to understand where I should be out there ...but you can always count on rogue sets so it's always scary! My best memory was a Fall '09 session, 3-4 foot solid Pipe. I was surfing Gums, and admiring Pipe (and my closest view to date)...and finally mustered up the confidence to catch some wide ones. It felt really good to be out there with all of that moving water, and just trying to make the drops on the corners! There is sooooo much energy out there, and it's one of my favorite spots on the North Shore to free dive it definitely has a special place in my heart!
