Challenger Series World No. 5, former World Junior Champion, and Surf Ranch Pro pres by 805 Beer wildcard Alyssa Spencer joins the pod. She talks about her strong start to the 2023 Challenger Series, barely missing out on qualifying for the Championship Tour last season, the biggest wins of her career, and competing at Pipeline as an injury replacement to start the season. She breaks down her motivation to make the tour, the goal to stay consistent in each event, navigating the highs and lows, and the women on the Challenger Series that inspire her the most. She looks back at her surfing origins, growing up and learning in Encinitas, California, where she got her intense competitive drive, winning the regional QS, and working with coach Matt Myers and traveling with Vahine Fierro. Alyssa also touches on her pre-heat playlist, what's in her Channel Islands quiver, and funny stories from the Challenger Series.
