Anastasia Ashley never had female role models or surfers to look up to when she was younger. After multiple Billabong XXL nominations, she’s an inspiration to people looking to take up surfing, which, she says, is inspiring to her.

Here, Anastasia talks about being a role model, breaking boundaries through surfing big waves, pushing women’s surfing and more.

  • SURF TRAMP

    WHY IS INERTIA TAKING MILITARY ADVERTISING MONEY AND PUTTING THOSE ADDS UP ON YOUR PAGE LOAD FOR SURFING VIDEOS???????????????

    NO ONE WANTS TO SEE THAT CRAP!
    AND ITS THE LAST THING MOST SURFERS EVER WANT TO CONSIDER>>>

    WORKING FOR THE MAN
    DOING HIS BIDDING
    KILLING BROWN PEOPLE OVER NATURAL RESOURCES!!!!!!!!!!!!

    WHO THE HELL DO YOU WORK FOR?
    God or the Devil?
    Good day and Aloha Weisberg…

    This is a joke right? You can’t seriously think that Anastasia Ashley is a good role model for young girls? She is known for instagramming ass selfies and twerking, not for being a great surfer.

    Come on guys, you can do better than giving air time to stories like this. We come here to read about surfing not some social media tart.

    I still can’t believe you are promoting Anastasia Ashley and Good Role Model in the same sentence. Would love to know who wrote this. Clearly it is someone from her PR company. Sorry but it’s one or the other; stripping, selfies, twerking, stupid photo shoots OR being a role model. You can’t have both
