Quotes

I started kiteboarding when I was 13. My dad was a kiteboarder, and I begged him to teach me until he finally agreed. He made me wait because it can be dangerous.

I’m working on a movie called Labor Day (2013) with Kate Winslet while still balancing kiteboarding. Being an actress and an athlete is a challenge, but I’m excited to see what happens.

I’ve seen so many scripts, and I want to do everything. Like with kiteboarding, you have to be fearless. I’m not scared.

Acting is such a crazy industry, but kiteboarding keeps me grounded.

When I was living in the Dominican Republic, the local kids became a part of my family.

With kiting you have to land a trick, and in that instant you know whether you won or lost–I knew I could become the best in the world if I trained. But with acting, there are different variations; there’s not a right or wrong way. It’s so hard because it’s so out of your hands. I have no idea what’s going to happen!

My goal is to continue to act and still be a professional kiteboarder.

I grew up in the indie world and that’s what I’m used to, but there’s something really incredible about having money behind a film and having the time to do as many takes as you want.

[on her first audition] My very first probably was for a commercial, for Pizza Hut. And I actually ended up booking it! I was probably 14.
