Tell me about your self and maybe some things that no one knows about?
I’m a very happy person who likes to be a lot with other people and have fun, but then I am a very quiet person too  who likes to be alone and think about many things: Like things I have done in the past and things that I may do or not in the future. Then I realize what a lucky person I am doing the thing I love, bodyboarding.

What was it like growing up in the Canary islands as a bodyboarder?
Growing up here is very nice because you have the best conditions to practice this sport.

What is it like to compete against boys your age and beat them?
I really like to compete with boys because you learn a lot more than always competing with girls.

What are your favorite spots in the canary island?
Well I was living all my life in Tenerife and my favorite spot there was La Caleta, but now I’m living in Gran Canaria. I think that Frontón is going to be one of my favorites but I am looking forward to trying the other ones as well.

The best single move you did for 2013?
–  The invert and Backflip of the video from Hawaii
– The backflip in Chile
– And some backflips and air reverse at La Caleta.

What are some of your highlights of your career?
I got European champion two times, one in Open woman and the other one in Junior ladies, 2nd at the  IBA Antafogasta bodyboard festival in Chile & 10th in the ranking 2013 of the IBA World Tour.

What are your plans for 2014?
I’m going to try to do the world tour and the Europian tour too.
