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?
Lulu Erkeneff: If I had a million dollars, the benefit half would go to stopping illegal whaling and to the Surfrider Foundation. I am very passionate about helping the ocean and trying to fix the faults we are making as a whole. I see it everyday and I wish to do everything I can to help the earth. The other half I would have for myself would go to a college education in marine biology and traveling the world as a competitive surfer and also just to surf different places with different cultures.

JG: Describe the best surfboard you've ever ridden and why it was special to you.
Lulu: The best board I have ever ridden is my current shortboard. It's a Rusty shaped by Rick Hamon and it just rides so amazingly well, I have progressed so much because of this board. It's a 5'8" squash tail and gives me so much freedom to try new things.

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?
Lulu: If I could travel back in time and hang with anyone, it would be with The Beatles. They made amazing music and are definitely icons. To be a groupie or a friend who followed on tour would be fun. I have always wanted to go on tour with a band and they would be it.

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?
Lulu: If I was stuck on a desert island I would definitely be hoping I could surf ...but to pass the time I would bring Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling, it is such an interesting book and I could read it over and over. The song I could listen to repeatedly would be You Belong With Me by Taylor Swift/Pitz, it always brings my mood up and pumps me up. Modern Collective would be the movie. It has amazing progressive surfing and great music to match. I would probably bring something healthy if I had to eat it everyday so it would probably be fruit salad ...if it wasn't so healthy it would be a cinnamon raisin bagel.

JG: What is your best surf-related memory of 2009?
Lulu: My best surf-related memory of 2009 has to be my first trip to the North Shore over this Thanksgiving. Amazing waves. Lifelong friends. Memorable place.
