Brisa Hennessy Talks Requalifying For The CT, Rookie Year Lessons, And Preparing For Pipeline

Championship Tour surfer Brisa Hennessy joins the pod to talk about her strong showing on the Challenger Series and requalifying for the CT. She breaks down her success on the new Challenger Series, the pressure she felt at the US Open, qualifying early, and how that impacted her nerves, expectations, and confidence going forward. She dives into the importance of mental strength in this sport, the uncontrollable nature of the ocean, how working with a sports psychologist has helped her be a better competitor, and some valuable advice given to her by Mick Fanning in Europe. She looks back at her unique upbringing off the grid in Costa Rica and how her childhood shaped her, moving to Oahu to pursue competition, and then eventually moving again to Namotu with her family. Brisa also shares stories about competing for Costa Rica in the Olympics, her rookie season on tour, "stealing like an artist," trying new equipment, surfing for her dream sponsor Rip Curl, and her experiences training for the first Championship Tour event at Pipeline.
