A New Year, a new video series from Alana Blanchard including this cool retro vibing image above, action sequences from the first part of the ASP Women’s World Tour 2013 and some interesting chat, especially considering the year Alana’s just had. She speaks about the Roxy Pro Gold Coast, where she surfed phenomenally well, and how mad it was when articles appeared saying: “Alana Blanchard can surf!” she says in an understandably bemused tone: “Yeah I can surf.”
