During her first six months on the Women’s Samsung Galaxy Championship World Tour, Hawaiian Tatiana Weston-Webb has far exceeded expectations. She started the season at No. 16 on the Jeep leaderboard, and has since flown up the rankings to No. 7 in the world. With the Vans US Open of Surfing quickly approaching, she discussed her mindset and strategy for Huntington, and the rest of the year.
“I am really excited to be competing on the CT. This is where it all starts for me. I don’t know my future, I am just more excited to be living my dream, and I am looking forward to how it’s all going to pan out. I feel like this is the beginning of my life.”
Hometown: Princeville, Kauai
