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?
Tammy-Lee Smith: Well, a million dollars makes a lot of Rands. I would buy a house or plot of land in my hometown where I was born, Salt Rock (Ballito) where my whole family lives. I think a large portion of the money would be spent on traveling with my family around the world. Save the rest. The other half of the money I'd use by helping charities such as Project O. Maybe try to form my own charity as cool as Project O. Also, I'd make sure that Thalente Biyela, a very good friend of mine who is a 15 year old phenomenal skater and street kid lives out his dreams of becoming pro and getting off the streets.

JG: Describe the best surfboard you've ever ridden and why it was special to you.
Tammy-Lee: Um, I'm not so sure. Probably the alaias I have ridden recently. They were challenging and fun. But really this double winger fish that G-force made me (Jordy Smith's dad) and what made it really special he had tagged my name the whole way across my board and it made me feel cool.

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?
Tammy-Lee: Anytime during Mandela's life as he is a South African icon. He put us on the map and has done wonders for our country.

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?
Tammy-Lee: Dove (a story of a young boy who sailed the world). Wrestlers by Hot Chip. Modern Collective because I haven't seen it yet.
Almonds .

JG: What is your best surf-related memory of 2009?
Tammy-Lee: Cruising around Bali with my best friend Daniel. The Mr. Price being in Ballito. A good sunset in California. A summer day at Salt Rock beach break.
