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?
Sunshine Makarow: I'm a bit torn ...I could buy the world a Coke, or I could divide the money up among a number of non-profits I support.  I think the Helen Woodward Animal Center does amazing things for animals and humans; the Green Initiative Volunteer Effort is a non-profit set up by my MBA classmates dedicated to providing technology to students in the developing world; and I've always been a fan of the Ocean Conservancy.  I'd also like to provide the seed money for my mom to set up her own non-profit to help children in the central coast area.

JG: Describe the best surfboard you've ever ridden and why it was special to you.
Sunshine: The board I'm on right now—a Bobby Shadley shape—has been amazing.  It's basically a thruster, just a bit shorter and wider than what I usually ride.  The board gets amazing speed and turns on a dime.

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?
Sunshine: 1940s, Eva Duarte de Peron.  The story of Evita fascinates me.

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?
Sunshine: Catch 22, Seasons of Love, Momentum II, Banana Bread.

JG: What is your best surf-related memory of 2009?
Sunshine: So many great ones ...Oceanside has been firing all Fall and Winter.  I guess having too many is not a bad thing!  I had a great session with that Boardfolio guy on New Year's Eve.  He was catching 200 yard beach break lefts and I managed to find one where I cranked one of the best off the tops of my life.
