Hey Angela, tell us how everything has been going? 

Everything has been rad!

It’s pretty cool you surf and skate, do you prefer one to the other? 

I love both surfing and skateboarding equally. 

We saw you recently won an award, was that for surfing, tell us more? 

Yes, I did win an award for surfing. I won Most Dedicated Surfer in the High School South Bay Scholastic Surfing Association. It was such an awesome experience wining that award especially since I’m only a sophomore and most Seniors win it.

What can we expect next from you?

I will be going to both Woodward West and Woodward East for a week in the Summer so definitely a bunch of rad clips.

Do you get to enjoy Summer and wind down? 

Summer will be epic, I’m taking a bunch of surf trips down south, going to Woodward West and Woodward East, and I’m going on a road trip to Oregon to do a skate tour.

What’s your go-to chill activity? 

Going for a quick jump in the ocean and playing the ukulele!

Favorite food… 

Chick-Fil-A fries!

Favorite music… 

Rock n Roll! Love The Offspring and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

When you were younger and people asked you what you wanted to be when you grow up, what did you say? 

I wanted to be a professional drummer and NASCAR driver.

Any last thank yous or shout outs?
