Alana Blanchard appeared in Sports Illustrated’s famed Swimsuit Edition last week, and they made this video about it. She’s not the first surfer in Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue. She won’t be the last.
Bruna Schmitz was featured in the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, and this isn’t the first time high-profile surfers have posed for mainstream magazines. Kelly Slater has been featured in ESPN’s Body Issue. Maya Gabeira was recently featured the The Body Issue, as was Steph Gilmore, who most recently appeared in Vogue. We’re confident the list will keep growing.
