When the Beach Boys sang their hit “Surfer Girl” they probably had Alana Blanchard in mind. Everybody has a fantasy that surfer chicks are hot and professional surfer and bikini model Alana Blanchard doesn’t dispel that theory. This sexy surfing superstar was featured in the 2013 Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition and made Forbes magazine ‘s list of one of the world’s 30 most influential sports stars under 30. Alana is from Kauai, Hawaii and surfs on The Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) world tour.  She also designs bikinis for one of her sponsors, Rip Curl.  When Alana was 13 years old, she was present when her best friend and fellow surfer, Bethany Hamilton was attacked by a shark. Bethany was surfing in the early morning with Alana, Alana’s father and brother when a shark severed her left arm below the shoulder. Alana and her family helped Bethany paddle back to shore and rushed her to the hospital. In the movie version of the incident, Alana was portrayed by actress Lorraine Nicholson, daughter of Jack in the 2011 film, Soul Surfer. Alana stars in her own online reality series, Surfer Girl on NetworkA.com about her life as a professional surfer and model. Another project Alana starred in was the nude celebrity photo leak that happened in September 2014. Along with a large group of celebrities and actresses, Alana’s iCloud account was hacked and her personal photos, some of them involving topless pictures were leaked online.

WHAT CAN YOU SEE IN ALANA’S LEAKED PICTURES?

Alana had around 25 pictures go viral in the photo leak. Some are selfies and some pictures are taken by someone else of her posing in lingerie and bathing suits. In many of the selfies, she’s showing off her naked breasts while she’s wearing lingerie. In fact, the majority are topless photos. In one odd topless shot, Alana’s face and upper body are covered in dirt and she’s sticking her tongue out. There are also several close ups butt shots where she’s wearing underwear.  Hamming for the camera, Alana is making goofy faces in some of the photos and in one, she’s posing with a friend. Alana isn’t a household name yet except in the surfing world so if one was to look on the bright side, at least this photo leak will bring her some attention. And as they say in the world of publicity, all publicity is good publicity.

WHO ARE ALANA’S NAKED PICTURES FOR?

Alana has been dating Australian pro surfer Jack Freestone since 2013 after the pair met on the North Shore of Oahu. Freestone is a two time Australian junior champion surfer and the surfing community views them as pro surfing’s ultimate power couple. If the pictures were taken after Alana met Freestone, they were probably definitely intended for him since the couple has been inseparable since they met. They often surf together at various hot surfing spots around the world such as the Gold Coast in Australia where Freestone lives.

ISN’T THERE CONTROVERSY SURROUNDING ALANA?

Alana was voted No.1 woman in recent international surfing polls and has a long list of sponsors making her the hottest property in women’s surfing yet she hasn’t won an event on the elite ASP tour. She’s also been the subject of a debate about the sexualization of women in pro surfing. However instead of back-biting and cat fights, other women champion surfers support Alana’s success as a sex symbol and hope that she gets recognized for her surfing ability as well.  Two-time world champion Carissa Moore said Alana has ‘‘brought thousands of eyes to our sport by wearing her small bikini bottoms. I just want everyone to appreciate that she is an athlete as well and she takes what she does seriously.”

Carissa herself chooses not to wear small bikinis in competition since she says there is ‘‘a fine line when it comes to sexualizing our sport.” However she does believe that a professional female surfer can be both athletic and sexy saying, “If it is overdone we lose respect but there is a way that the girls can be marketed tastefully.” Alana says each woman should wear what they find comfortable and she is happy with her wardrobe choices, ‘‘I guess it’s about whatever you feel good in. Girls like to feel cute, so why not?’’ However, Alana recognizes that she needs to prove she’s a world-class surfer through winning competitions, ‘‘I guess it is frustrating but if I want people to realize that I’m a good surfer, I need to surf well in contests.” Five-time world champion Stephanie Gilmore also came out in support of Alana and said she should be recognized for her athletic abilities in addition to her looks, ‘‘I think she would be a little bit bummed that maybe her beauty gets more attention that her actual surfing talent.” Well, in the grand scheme of things, it’s not the worst thing in the world to be bummed about.
