“It’s on my mind ALL of the time. I get up in the morning and I’m like I wonder what the surf’s like. You know, I go to bed thinking I wonder if there’s going to be surf tomorrow and the I just, you know, I go to sleep dreaming about the last wave I caught and things like that [laughs]. It’s really crazy but, [pauses] it’s really strange and I never thought I’d feel like thisabout anything [laughs]. It’s really weird. It’s like being in love, you know? (Nat)”

Excerpt quote from interviews done by Lucy Spowart, Lisette Burrows & Sally Shaw for their article: ‘I just eat, sleep and dream of surfing’: when surfing meets motherhood, in Sport in Society: Cultures, Commerce, Media and Politics 13(7-8).
