The Billabong girl team riders have been chilling and surfing on the North Shore of Hawaii, we catch up with them to see how life in Hawaii has been treating them…
How’s a usual day at the North Shore house?
It is kind of paradise, you wake up in front of the sea and check the ocean, if it’s good you put your bikini on and go for a surf. The whole day is organised around surfing, taking pictures and sunbathing. At night you are just so tired!
Do you all surf together?
No, because there were 13 of us and all the surfers at the spot would not like it. That is why we went 4 by 4.
Do you have a fixed schedule?
It did happen simply because there were a lot of us and all needed shots so we were split into small groups and took our turn.
We would have lunch, then a 15 minute power nap, then training time… No, it’s not that hard, we are also here to appreciate and meet each other so we are not in a hurry!
Who spends longest in the bathroom in the morning?
Is it something special for you to stay in the North Shore Billabong house?
Of course, I have been dreaming about doing something like this since I began surfing. I am so lucky being here and it’s such a mythical place.
What’s the pad like?
It’s exactly how you could imagine. It’s a five room, sea-view house in V-Land bay, just after sunset with a swimming pool, jacuzzi, and huge kitchen and restrooms… and a pool table!
What is the main topic you girls are talking about?
Who’s doing the cooking?
We don’t have a cook so we all do our own shopping and cook for 2 or 3 girls – otherwise it’s too complicated!
Who is sharing rooms together?
The Australians together, then me and Mirka are sharing the restroom upstairs and Joana’s with Jenny, the coach.
What about the younger girls like Leila and Monyca, don´t they have to go to school?
They are supposed to study at the house during the day, but….
How do the boys behave when they see ten Billabong girls on the beach?!
We’re pro-ladies paddling out and ripping the waves in pieces. They are also pro riders, so they are not that impressed! but the Hawaians are really friendly if you smile, be respectful and go 3 at the most!
Who picks the tunes in the house?
We had KK mixing.
Do you throw empty beer-cans in the Volcom backyard?
