Alana Blanchard

Born-and-raised on Hawaii’s garden-isle of Kauai, Blanchard’s comfort in powerful surf has established the regular-footer as a consistent top finisher at the prestigious Vans Triple Crown series. In addition to her talent in the water, Blanchard has built an international name for herself as a model that has gained attention from the likes of media giant Rolling Stone as one of the world’s hottest women and her talent in and out of the water marks her as one of the biggest names in women’s surfing. Hey my name is Alana Rene Blanchard. I’m 21 years old. I was born at my house on the beautiful island of Kauai. My dad taught me how to surf when I was around 4 years old at the Hanalei Pier. I was about 9 years old when I started surfing competitively. I love traveling, making new friends and surfing different waves around the world. I know it won’t be easy but my goal in life is to win a world title some day. I feel so lucky to be able to pursue a professional career doing something that I love so much, and without the support from my parents and sponsor’s it would never have happened. -Alana Blanchard
