Eww. Got a boyfriend?

Used to be.

Regular or goofy?


What’s your favorite beach in the whole world?


What was it like modeling in Japan?

It was a great experience and it opened my eyes to a lot of new things. It’s hard though coming from such a small island and being thrown in to a huge city like Tokyo.

Last dirty joke you told?

I heard they came up with a new pill to cure lesbians…it’s called trycoxagen.

If you could go on a date with any pro surfer who would it be?

Mr. Pipeline Gerry Lopez.

Worst pickup line you’ve ever heard?

Do I know you? You look a lot like my next girlfriend.

Secret and/or hidden talent?
