As the most Googled surfer on the planet, most people seem to take Alana on face value, but I really like showing people that she is more than just a swimwear model. I really think that these clips do just that. She has a beautiful surfing style and is one of the most hilarious people to hang around. And she charges, proven by the fact she has just re-qualified for the World Tour.
