Bikini Models

4th of July, Halloween, and the Miss Reef Calendar—these are the 3 major events each year that we all look forward to. And the 2016 version of the best calendar in the biz has finally dropped. Watch the video trailer and then grab a copy for yourself here to make your 2016 the best year yet.

Aside from pro surfing, modeling has been a big part of Alana Blanchard’s life. In this episode of Alana Surfer Girl Reflections, Alana talks about what it’s like designing bikinis for Rip Curl and the impact Andy and Bruce Irons has had on her life as pro surfer.

Our love of pro surfer/bikini model/surfer twerker Anastasia Ashley is well known. She was recently in New York City (why didn't you call Anastasia? you never call...) and she dropped by famed (albeit creepy) photographer Terry Richardson's studio for a nice little photo shoot. And since it's Friday, we figured you might enjoy taking a break from your work day to have Anastasia put a smile on your face.

It's that time of the year again: the new [Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue]1 release! It's here to bring us out of our winter doldrums (and many, many feet of snow) to dream of brighter days on sandy beaches (with gorgeous women of course).

The 2015 issue is a visual stunner, as usual, and we've put together our 10 favorite things about this year's issue. The first was the classic Camaro above. See the rest below.

What's a sandy butt photo you ask? It's exactly what it sounds like. A female in a bikini posing with lots of sand on her butt. They're sorta like surfing's beach equivalent of a barrel shot. There's always some great ones from the surfing world, and usually from the likes of stars Anastasia Ashley, Alana Blanchard, and the entire Miss Reef calendar. So we decided to put some of the best together in one spot for you to look back on the year of sandy butt photos with fondness. You're welcome.
