Better late than never! Here are a few snippets of my extended stay in my home state of Florida!

One of the first waves from an all time session at 38th. This year has been a weird one with the lack of swell coming through but I’m so glad for this run of swell before I embark on my 2 month field quarter (where there will be no skim boarding... for 2 whole months)!! 🌊😅 Let’s be real, the one going hard is the grom at the beginning of the clip! How many of you noticed?

Don’t be surprised but proud. Proud of every woman who shows up, speaks up, and lays the foundation for generations to come. So that one day, nobody will ever say “you’re good for a girl. “ 🤜🤛

Skimming in Florida, where I first learned to skim, has been so fun and most importantly, super WARM. Here’s a photo from when I rode a @slotstikskim and was learning what turning meant. Good to see that my stoke face hasn’t changed much! 😂 #skimboarding

One night, I had a dream that I could play a string instrument. In that dream I felt what it would be like to be able to create music and the disconnect from the self that came with the freedom of creating music. The next day, I bought a ukulele and surprised myself at how far commitment alone can take you. Today, I know just a couple songs. But what I learned from a can do attitude, I’ll carry with me every time I think, “hey, that looks cool but I don’t think I can do it.” Try something new, and don’t give up! You will most certainly surprise yourself! @katsnapss

Today my mom and I had a discussion about social media and the implications it has to our minds and well being. So I felt responsible to say something about myself and maybe I’ll inspire you guys to be truthful about yourselves here on Instagram. . . .

What I post here is not what my life looks like from day to day. I am usually inside, studying or working. 5 days a week, I dread waking up. I work until I’m too tired to even go outside. But that’s what it takes to make your educational and career goals a reality and no, I wouldn’t change anything about it. . . .

The photos you see here are what truly make me glow and shine. Being outside, skimming, being with my loved ones. But all of that wouldn’t be as satisfying if I didn’t spend a considerable amount of time getting down and working towards my goals. . . .

So if you have ever liked one of my photos and thought, “that’s what life is all about, she knows how to live life to the fullest.” I’m so very sorry to ever make you think that I didn’t wake up at 630 every morning and that I don’t have to force myself to get to the beach. And that sometimes I just lay in bed thinking about how life sucks and how I’m tired ALL THE TIME. . . .

My point is, don’t compare yourself to someone’s Instagram account. Do you and be happy with what you make of your own life. ❤️

Hi 👋
I don’t often get pictures of my face, and whenever I do, I end up staring into my eyes of the past for what seems like infinity. I guess it gives me an opportunity to look at myself, outside of myself, as if I’m looking at someone else separate from me.
Does anyone else do that? 🤔😂 📸 @katsnapss
