With the first 2015 World Surf League Championship Tour stop around the corner, Body Glove surfer Tatiana Weston-Webb of Kauai shares her hopes and dreams about being the only female rookie on tour. The 18 year old learned to surf from her brother, but it was her mom, a big wave bodyboarder who won a contest at Pipeline, that inspired her competitive drive.

“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.”

You can watch Tatiana compete at the Roxy Pro Gold Coast, which will be webcast LIVE at WorldSurfLeague.com.
