Biography:

Anastasia Ashley is a talented American professional surfer whose popularity extends well beyond the surfing world. One of the most well-known female surfers on the professional tour, Anastasia has been winning surfing tournaments and landing spots in magazines since her professional surfing career began in high school. In 2014, the 27 year old surfing socialite was given the coveted honor of being featured in the Sports Illustrated magazine Swimsuit Edition alongside fellow professional athletes Skylar Diggins and Alex Morgan. Many surf fans and others recognize Anastasia from the viral videos of her fun dance warm-up routine before she hits the water for each competition.

Sports Speaker Anastasia moved to Hawaii at the age of 5 and took up the sport that would become her career. Professional surfing was mostly reserved for men at the time when she first started competing in competitions but she did not let that stop her from succeeding in many of the contests she entered. Anastasia won over 200 amateur events before winning the National Scholastic Surfing Association National Championship at 16. Since winning the Associated of Surfing Professionals Rookie of the Year award in 2005, she has continued her success including 1st place finishes at the 2008 APSPR Corona pro tour and at Women’s Pipeline Pro in 2010. In 2013, she was nominated at the Billabong XXL Big Wave Awards for Overall Performance and placed 2nd at the Women’s Pipeline Pro event.

Her impressive surfing career and astonishingly good looks to boot have opened up a host of other opportunities for Anastasia including some modeling and feature stories in major print publications such as FHM, GQ magazine, Shape and Self magazines. The life of a surfer involves leading a fit, healthy lifestyle and Anastasia acts as a spokesperson for the supplement company Bikini Ready. Over the course of her career she has garnered several other endorsement deals from industry leading companies including Oakley, Infinity Surfboards, and PowerBar. Anastasia also has created her own signature shoe line with the company Airwalk that released in 2008.
