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?
Cori Schumacher: The $250,000 would be given to Surf For Life to aid the Bri Bri down in Costa Rica, $250,000 would go to micro-finance loans for women in Uganda, the rest would be dispersed among friends and family to pay off all loans and debts so we can live as close to freedom as we are able.

JG: Describe the best surfboard you've ever ridden and why it was special to you.
Cori: The best surfboard I've ever ridden was a 6 ft. single-fin, early '70s shortboard Donald Takayama shaped for me several years ago. I had a session with it at double overhead South Ponto that blew my mind. I had never experienced what a single fin shortboard could do on waves of that size. The tight turns in the pocket convinced me that three fins are not necessarily the best fin configuration. Until that point, I pretty much saw single fins as quaint left-overs from the past. That board handed me a fat slice of humble pie that day and changed the way I viewed concepts from the past forever.

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?
Cori: I'd like to hang with the Buddha. Looking at all the religions on the planet, I can't help but notice the peace and thoughtfulness of Buddhism. There haven't been any Buddhist witch hunts or Buddhist crusades or Buddhist bombings or Buddhist terrorists ...I think that Buddha did an exceptional job shaping a message that to this day, makes the world a better place.

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?
Cori: God Emperor of Dune, Frank Herbert. Black Hearted Love, PJ Harvey. Five Summer Stories. Turkey jerky.

JG: What is your best surf-related memory of 2009?
Cori: There was one random day this summer when Maria and I decided to surf Pipe's in Encinitas. We suited up, paddled out and over the course of the next several hours (two sessions) got the chance to surf with my mom (Jeannette Prince), my dad (Craig Schumacher), Linda Benson, Kelly Sloan, Jamie Lagardere, Summer Romero, Danielle Burt, Malia Fuertes, Jennifer Flanigan, Tiffany Seale, Sormarie Nieves and Kelly Nicely. It wasn't planned and probably wouldn't have happened if we had! The smiles and joy from everyone reminded me of why I still do this surfing thing.
