Hey! My name is Alana Rene Blanchard and this is my official blog. I was born at my house on the beautiful island of Kauai. My dad taught me how to surf when I was around 4 years old at the Hanalei Pier. I was 9 years old when I started competing and since then, I have been surfing my way around the world.

I love going to new places, making new friends and surfing new waves. It’s pretty important that I stay fit and healthy when I am travelling so I like finding cool places to workout, the best local produce to eat and of course, great places to go shopping - I figure that walking while shopping is exercise too ;)

But most of all, after a long trip away, I love landing back in Hawaii. It’s the perfect place to hideaway, spend time with my family and surf some uncrowded secret spots. 

I feel so lucky to be able to pursue a professional career doing something that I love so much, and without the support from my parents and sponsor’s it would never have happened. So, thanks for joining me and following my blog, tweets and pictures; here’s to many more bikinis and adventures!
