Airwalk surfer Granger Larsen packed his surfboard and flew across the Atlantic to hit up the Cascais Billabong Pro. Granger had a pretty good run, making it all the way to the quarter finals.
Airwalk surfer Anastasia Ashley snatched up third place at the 2013 Red Bull Qiantang River Surfing Tournament in China last weekend. Shoot her a tweet and say congrats!
Airwalk surfer Anastasia Ashley leads a busy life. She’s obviously an accomplished pro surfer, but she also attends photo shoots, beach clean-ups, and is known to party, from time to time. Since a lot of you already know these things about her, we wanted you to hear a few other random tidbits as well.
Airwalk: If you were the star of a reality show what would the show be called?
AA: Probably Anastasia’s Wild Life, or Anastasia’s Crazy Adventures, or maybe if I was lucky Anastasia Boo Boo.
Airwalk: Outside of action sports what would be your dream sponsor deal?
AA: Most definitely Starbucks, you can never go wrong with too much coffee!
Airwalk: If you could see any band play, past or present, who would it be?
AA: I have always wanted to see U2 in concert, I have never seen them, so they are the one band I hope to wipe off them my bucket list.
Airwalk: Whatâ€™s the most embarrassing band or artist on your ipod?
AA: Probably Miley Cyrus, I love her music. Itâ€™s pretty catchy even though it’s straight cheesy pop.
Airwalk: Whoâ€™s the best James Bond?
AA: Pierce Bronson, no competition. Heâ€™s my favorite, but if I was to pick a second place it would be Sean Connery.
Airwalk: Do you have a good luck charm that you take with you when you travel?
AA: Yes, my cute stuffed animals. (did I really admit that?)
Airwalk: If your surf style were an animal, what would it be?
AA:Definitely a cat, because itâ€™s fierce and feisty!
Airwalk and Airwalk pro-surfer Anastasia Ashley teamed up with The Surfrider Foundation Oahu Chapter for the annual Sunset Beach Clean Up event in Haleiwa, HI this past weekend. In its third year, the event not only cleans and helps preserve Oahu beaches; it provides an opportunity to educate the public about ocean-related issues. Airwalk provided t-shirts to all volunteers for their hard work and joining in for a great day of environmentally friendly fun.
This was my first surf trip back from breaking my leg. I was hoping to grab some entries for “Wave Of The Summer Contest,” but I ended up catching the swell a few days after the contest ended. Either way it was a great trip. I was a bit under gunned board wise and apprehensive of my recent injury but once I got a couple good ones I felt right at home. I’m stoked to be dusting off the cob webs in such an awesome place.
- Warren Metcalfe
You may not hear as much about Warren Metcalfe as you do some of our other athletes, but that’s only because he leads a life that most of us envy. Warren spends the majority of his year down in Mexico, relaxing on the beach, shredding waves, and enjoying warm weather nearly year round. While some of you may just cursed his name, we can assure you that he works diligently to perfect his craft. Check out this video if you need some proof.
We had the chance to hang out with Anastasia in SoCal last week, which meant plenty of beach time. While we can’t keep up with Anastasia on the water, we still had a great time trying! Anastasia is heading down to the beach in this shot, getting ready to shred some waves. She’s rocking her signature Airwalk tank too! Make sure snag one in our online shop before summer’s over, or we sell out.
Airwalk darling Anastasia Ashley has been everywhere in the press lately! Normally we’re giving you the heads up on one mention, but this time around we have three. First we have the 7Sky Magazine from Europe, then Golden Ride Magazine from Germany, and finally Transworld Surf Mag’s Women’s Issue. Big ups to AA on all of her recent recognition!
People have been asking lately, what has Airwalk Surfer Anastasia Ashley been up to? Well she’s currently out in Hawaii, surfing Waimea Bay. And yes, we’re all really jealous. She also just landed a huge interview in Midweek, which you can check out here.
Airwalk surfer Warren Metcalfe has been keeping busy south of the border competing in the Latin Tour. Above is a picture of him in Mexico, as well as a video from Brazil.
