I wish there were another five minutes in the heat. I'm always upset when I get second. I am disappointed. It took me 25 minutes to find out where I wanted to surf.
It's a once in a lifetime opportunity and to do it on Australia Day makes it even more special.
It's one of the most remarkable experiences I have ever had.
It's so frustrating! You work so hard to get to a final, so to lose is really hard. I'm thrilled I made it to the final, but at the same time I'm really disappointed with the performance I put on out there.
I haven't prepared as much I would like to but it will be fun to get out there again. I have nothing left to prove in surfing but still have the desire to keep going.

Put your hand on your heart and ask yourself, what do I want? The first thing that comes to mind is always the right one.
You've always got to be aware of why you don't win; otherwise you'll keep losing. Every mistake is a learning experience and, hopefully, you won't make the same mistake again.
It's not so much what you do, it's just how well you do it, and that you do, do it.
I wasn't born a world champion. I just worked really hard to become one.
