“It’s like a perfect little blue room with a window.”

Hey. Are you getting ready for school?
Yeah.

How are you doing in school?
Good.

What grade are you in?
Eighth.

How do you like your teachers?
They’re all pretty nice.

I saw your full page photo in Surfer magazine. Did that change anything for you?
In what perspective?

Are you more popular with the girls now?
[Laughs] I’ve always been popular with the girls.

[Laughs] I figured as much. When did you start surfing?
When I was three.

Who made your first surfboard?
I got it from John John. I don’t know where John John got it. I got his old board when he got a new one.

You got the hand-me-downs. You can talk to big Nathan [Fletcher] about that, huh?
[Laughs] Yeah.

What’s your favorite break?
Pupukea and Pipe.

Where are your favorite places to skate?
I like Hawaii kai in town and Steve’s bowl on the North Shore.

You’ve skated in a lot of different places all over the world. How was it to skate in Scotland?
It was really good. That’s one of my favorite places, too.

Have you been surfing a quad?
I have a quad, but I haven’t been surfing lately. I’ve just been skateboarding. The waves have been super flat.

What do you see in the tube?
It’s like a perfect little blue room with a window.

What do you hear?
“Crrrrsssh” and then a big crash.

Who are your favorite surfers?
I like my mom, Nathan [Fletcher], Christian [Fletcher], Tom Curren, Matt Archbold, Kelly Slater, and Andy and Bruce Irons.
