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?
Shea Hodges: If I was to receive a million dollar check with a beautiful little note on it like that I would donate 250 grand to the country of Haiti to help with the earthquake devastation. The other 250k I would try to educate our keiki (children) about growing and raising their own herbs, fruits, veggies and livestock. Also, showing them how to be sustainable and live with renewable energy. I would want to help us humans realize what we are doing to our planet and try to clean it up.

JG: Describe the best surfboard you've ever ridden and why it was special to you.
Shea: My best and most favorite board ever besides the one I'm riding at the moment shaped by Kim Purington was a 5'7" Gerry Lopez thruster. It had beige and orange tiger strips on the deck and bottom. She was a dream for sure and handled Bowls from 1ft and horrible to 5ft and barreling.

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?
Shea: If I could go back in time and hang with anyone in the world it would be my dad because you don't appreciate people or the things you have due to life's craziness until they are gone.

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?
Shea: Well, for my one book I'd have to bring some sort of flora fauna guide so I can somewhat have a clue about what type of greens I'm surrounded by. One song would Beach in Hawaii by Ziggy Marley because that song hits Da spot. One surf movie ...pointless unless there's a TV but thanks to Clay Marzo and Quik his DVD case is recycled cardboard and there are wildflower seeds in there too so I could have some cardboard for my fire and some wildflowers that I could plant and hippie out on. For my snack I'd have to bring carob chocolate nuggets because they're delicious and give you energy.

JG: What is your best surf-related memory of 2009?
Shea: I believe teaching over 200 humans how to surf this summer at the Hilton Hawaiian Village takes the gold or my friend spearing an 8-ft tiger shark in its dome due to it trying to eat his kayak at Magic Island while we surfed across the channel at Bowls.
