Championship Tour rookie Luana Silva joins the podcast to talk about making her debut at the Billabong Pro Pipeline. Born and raised on the North Shore, she discusses the first time she surfed Pipeline at the age of 11, how hard it is to train there, and her strategy going into her historic first event. She breaks down her breakthrough season on the Challenger Series, details her big performances at Portugal and Haleiwa, and describes the mindset she's taking into her rookie year on tour. She looks back at her journey to the CT, growing up in Hawaii, feeling right at home at Sunset Beach, learning to surf with power, and progressing her air game. Luana also touches on the tour events she's most excited to surf, the pressure of the midseason cut line, Carissa Moore's impact, focusing on the ocean and not her competitors, and being part of the amazing new generation of women on tour.
