Janis Joplin and Jodi Mitchell to modern day likes of Adele, Zoe DeChanel, Amy
Winehouse, and KT Tunstall.” And Suzy Surfs and has so much Joy for the Ocean!
Hi! Suzy, Where did you start surfing and how were you introduced to the sport
AloHA! Thanks for having me 🙂 When I was growing up, my much older and cooler cousin, Matty, was a surfer up in Long Island, NY. I remember being like 6-years-old and snooping around his room only to find SEX WAX on the dresser next to his bed. Of course, I freaked out and thought it was the funniest thing ever!! I even ran down the stairs with it in my hands screaming for my dad. Haha Wow. But I don’t think it was until a family trip to Oahu around the age of thirteen that got me hooked on surfing finally.What size a surfboard did you start on and for how long?
What moved you to riding a short board & who?
helped you focus and progress with your surfing technique to the next levels?
In turn, surfing helped me focus in things like school and music. It still does. A good pump up mix to rock up to on the drive to the water never hurt either!
Where are your favorite spots to surf and why?
entertainment, what gives you inspiration when you have had to much LA City
you want to LIVE and Why? LA City doesn’t count as one.
What do you think that helps surfers when they plateau out and can’t seem to
progress any further with their Surfing?
Cross-training! In and out of the water. Ride a different board. Or go hiking. Or rollerblading. Use those different muscles you forgot you had. Yoga–increase your flexibility! Doesn’t pole-dancing do that too? haha Whatever you’re into.
When does your next film release?
HEAVEN. A feature film about a girl rock band that takes over Hollywood. I play a surfing guitar player in it actually-go figure. HEAVEN is set to release in a couple of months actually..by the end of Summer!
What do you want to do when it does? And where is your next Surf trip to?
