(SOUNDBITE) (English) KANOA IGARASHI SAYING: "All the hard work you do, everything you do, I doubted it in my first round here.
I didn't catch any waves and I just said what's the point of working hard when you don't get the waves.
But it all makes sense, all the one percenters, all the early mornings and all the times in the gyms alone, surfing alone, gym alone, going to places and working hard when no one is watching, it all makes sense." 5.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) STEPHANIE GILMORE SAYING: "I can't believe it, I just, I knew Sally was going to be out there trying to get barrels and I just thought stick to your game plan and work with whatever waves you get and just make the best out of them.
And then I was sitting there at the end the last five minutes going get something in excellent range, because I haven't really done that all event.
I just kept thinking about it and then I pulled the trigger on that one, oh my gosh.
It just have such a nice line, that inside was just so dry I was like uh-oh I don't know if this is a good idea.
I couldn't see anything, I just closed my eyes, held my line and came out and I was like, Okay, I've got to hit this end section..
Ahhh this is so cool." 10.
