Surfer Girl: Alana Blanchard's models retro swimsuits at alluring photo shoot
Alana shows off her classic style
Pro Surfer Alana Blanchard headed to Los Angeles a little early before the US Open of Surfing to get some work done. On this episode of Surfer Girl Alana channels classic pinup girl style in retro bikinis at a [Surfer magazine]4 photo shoot. After her modeling duties are done, it's time for Alana to get back to preparing for the ASP women's world tour. A big part of that is being in peak physical condition, so Alana uses her time in L.A. to train at Athletic Gaines, a gym for elite athletes where some of the NFL's top players train. While Alana claims that she's nowhere near in shape after the workout, anyone who sees her go through the grueling session would beg to differ.

Never heard of Zoltan Torkos? Well you should have at this point. The first person to land a kickflip on a surfboard, Zoltan has been making surfing kickflips look way too easy for years now. And this new footage shows Zoltan (who is also a magician) landing not one but two kickflips on the same wave. Wonder what Zoltan has up his sleeve next...

Ever been riding the MegaRamp and think to yourself: "Man, I wish I could use just one board for this and hitting the mountain."? Well, if you haven't had that thought that's what the guys at Signal Snowboards are here for.
Dave Lee and the crew team up with Lithe (a small skateboard operation out of California that’s using composites in skateboards in a really unique and cool way) on this insane build for this new Every Third Thursday. The goal of this build is to adapt Lithe’s unique carbon fiber building process to create a snowboard that can double as a skateboard. The board needs to be bomber enough for X Games pro skater Mitchie Brusco to skate on Woodward West’s Megaramp, but still have enough flex so it can turn on snow. We test this dual board out on Camp Woodward’s Megaramp and on the snowy park jumps at Woodward at Copper and it got two Mega thumbs up!
What do you think of this do everything board? Let us know in the comments below!
