Alana Blanchard Featured in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2013

Rip Curl is proud to announce that their team rider, the sexy and talented Alana Blanchard, will be featured in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2013. And she will be wearing the new Rip Curl bikinis. The 22-year-old natural beauty from Kauai was handpicked by the SI crew to be featured alongside the most beautiful women in the world in the pages of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit.

MJ Day, senior editor of SI Swimsuit, says: “The decision to include Alana was the easiest one made in the entire issue! She embodies the ideal that we strive to represent at SI Swimsuit. Beautiful, healthy, active and empowered, Alana charges waves and life the way we do here at Swimsuit. She is the ultimate beach girl and she can rock a bikini like nobody's business!”

Alana and Rip Curl are in the third year of collaboration on a signature line of bikinis and beachwear, Alana’s Closet, so the timing couldn’t be more perfect. The new bikinis line reflects Alana’s personal style and taste as well as her lifestyle. Talking about it, Alana reveals: “When designing for Alana’s Closet, I’m always thinking of sexy, comfortable bikinis that will look and fit great in the water.”
