The 5 Most Influential Professional Women Surfers of All Time
Here is my list of professional surfing’s most influential women. I will not call them girls or chicks and I will not assess them on looks or bikini bodies. These women are surfers and this about competitive surfing.

Surfer Profile - Lisa Anderson
Blending equal parts feminine beauty and animal aggression, Lisa Anderson shattered the surfer-chick mold and reached iconic status by single-handedly changing our perception of women who ride waves.

Yoga for Board Sports DVD
Yoga for Surfers (Volumes I and II) provided effective yoga instruction mixed with energizing surf footage from world class surfers. Now, Peggy Hall has released Yoga for Board Sports which focuses on the muscles essential to modern surfing (and other boards sports as well).

Shaper - Ashley Lloyd Thompson
Surfboard shapers are generally a salty bunch of guys. They work in cramped sheds, breath in shreds of blank foam, and never seem to have your board ready when you want it. Ashley Lloyd-Thompson is different, at least, in the fact that she isn't a guy. Learn about the world's only female surfboard shaper.

Alana Blanchard
Surfer, model Alana Blanchard has etched out a new path for the modern professional female surfer. With both talent and looks, the Kauai-based ripper has backed up every bikini shoot with a win against the world's best young surfers.

Erickson Shines Down Under
American ladies posted a few impressive results at the ASP Grade-1 Billabong Pro Junior held at Coffs Harbour in Australia. Sage Erickson(Ojai, CA), 18, finished fifth overall while Orange County native Sarah Taylor (Huntington Beach, CA) finished seventh amongst the tough international competition.

Ocean Star
Christina DiMari is a lifelong surfer and author of two books. The latest entitled Ocean Star is a sharp and sometimes brutal memoir of the dark events that cast a shadow over her childhood and sent her teen years spiraling out of control. After repeated family betrayal and abuse and the death of a close friend, Ocean Star embarks on a path to wholeness and happiness.
