Tara Dakides




What is your career highlight so far?

Probably my video parts with Mac Dawg films with technical difficulties being one of the most highlighted parts.


Who were your heroes growing up?

Mary Lou Retton, Carabeth Burnside, and my dad Frank Dakides.


What advice do you have for an aspiring pro athlete?

Don't get too serious that you lose touch with the love and fun of your sport.


What do you do in your free time?

I work on my house, surf, ride moto and road bike.  Most importantly, I spend time with friends/family and people I love, cook organic food, drink wine, play music and relax.


What is your favorite quote and why?

"To worry about life drains life from you."  I tend to worry at times and get caught up in the challenges of life so when I do I think of this quote and it pulls me back in the moment and knowing all is as it should be and it always works out!


What is on your ipod?

Top 6 to make it even... Fleetwood Mac, Radiohead, Johnny Cash, Pink Floyd, Patsy Cline, and Bob Dylan.
