FIRSTLY, JACQUELINE, PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF...
Hi! Okay, so my name is Jacqueline Getz and I'm a 18 year old surfer from Southern California! I was born and raised in one of the best places in SoCal, Dana point. I currently am a highschool student with two older brothers and an older sister. When I was 5, my dad bought me my first surfboard and I absolutely love surfing, although I didn't stick with it after that in my 7th grade summer I decided I'm going to surf. Since then, I've gone to the beach almost every day. If you ever meet me it will probably be while out surfing, on the beach, or through my parents.
WHERE´S YOUR LOCAL BEACH AND WHAT´S IT LIKE THERE?
I personally love all beaches so this is a difficult one, but if I had to choose one it would definitely be San Onofre State Beach in San Clemente! I love this beach so much. You go to San Onofre it definitely has that 1965 vibe to it and everybody down there is amazing! First, you will see the cute little pay building and then you'll run into some of the funniest and sweetest people, the San Onofre Surfing Club! When you're at San Onofre you just are so happy, the view is amazing with the sunset, scenery, and of course the different types of styled surfers out on the water!
WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY?
Everything! If you don't have a positive outlook on everything then you're not living!
HOW DOES SURFING INSPIRE YOU?
Surfing inspires me in every way possible, it lets me show my passion and do what I love. Even when I'm not the one surfing, watching others surf inspires me to want to grow and move up in the surfing world. One of my biggest dreams is to see myself longboarding on the front of a big Surf magazine! It´s my life and it´s the root of surfing. I think it should be more emphasized just as much as shortboarding. Surfing has been the only sport I've stuck to and it has become such a big part of my life. In contests, I love going against the best people because those are the people that I'll have to beat in order to get to the top of the surfing World.
YOU AND YOUR FRIEND, ROSE, JUST STARTED A NEW PROJECT, “SEE A CLEAN SEA”, PLEASE TELL US MORE ABOUT IT.
Our new non-profit project is called, "See a Clean Sea", and one of our main goals is to see a clean sea with no trash, to protect our environment, and along the way to reach the goal we hope for. Not only learn more about our environment and the issues occurring, but to educate the rest of the world.
Our plan to help seals and sea lion pups along the West Coast of California by fundraising money to as many marine mammal centers as possible. We´rehoping to adopt as many seals and sea lions as we can, and to have as many beach cleanups as possible.
WHEN YOU HAVE SOME TIME TO YOURSELF, WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO?
When I have time to myself I like to sing, play guitar and electric bass. Also doodle in my notebook, mostly doodling flowers and waves.
WHAT SONG BEST DESCRIBES THE WAY YOU FEEL RIGHT NOW?
Definitely "Miles Away" by Years Around The Sun. It's so pretty and relatable and talks about being on the ocean and wanting to get away from anything bothering you. Another song would definitely be "Forever" by the Haim. It's just a really cute song by my favorite band!! Also I feel like playing the bass right now and their bass player is AMAZING.
WOULD YOU PREFER TO BE ABLE TO FLY OR BREATHE UNDERWATER?
Oh my gosh! Definitely breathe underwater. There are so many things I would love to explore in the ocean.
WHAT DO YOU NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT?
Haha, of course my phone. And my swimsuit. I always bring my swimsuit. Who knows! You could just end up at the beach with your friends!
ANYTHING YOU´D LIKE TO SAY TO OUR BEACHCUTIES READER?
Love the ocean, respect it!! Get to the beach with a cute bikini, sunglasses and treat yourself to a day! This company is amazing and I know it will be big and I absolutely love how they include and bring in so many people! Enjoy your life wherever you are, whether it's at the beach or a pool. Adventure as much as you can!
