Surfing Power Couple: Jack and Alana

He’s 2-time World Pro Junior Champ, she’s iconic bikini model and #5 ranked surfer in the world, and the recent hook-up of Jack Freestone and Alana Blanchard broke hearts across the globe.


Aside from their recent success on the surf tour, the two are also influential in designing fashion and performance apparel. Here Alana shows off her aptitude for the camera, and body sculpted by 2 decades of surfing in Hawaii. See Rip Curl’s bikini line worn by Alana Blanchard here.

Jack Freestone is Billabong’s young phenom making his first big push to qualify for the Elite ASP World Tour. In addition to his back-to-back World Pro Junior titles, he and his fellow progressive surfing pal Chippa went nuts in that wave Pool in Dubai. Enjoy the punt-fest, and check out his signature Invert Boardshort here.

They’ve only been together a mere month, so don’t go prophesying world championship offspring or celebrity weddings. Follow them on Instagram @JackFreestone @AlanaBlanchard

He’s RVCA’s A-list surf advocate, she’s supermodel CEO of Tori Praver swimwear, and they’re surfing’s newest proud parents. On 2/28 the Hawaii natives had a baby girl Ryan, who’s genetics already make her Hawaiian Royalty. The once stone-faced pipeline charger Fuller has no problem expressing affection for his SI cover-girl, and I’m sure we’ll be seeing lots of baby Ryan on Instagram. CONGRATS!

Along with his big wave accolades, Fuller has made a name for himself in photography and hi-fashion modeling. He honed those skills to design signature trunks with his mosaic photography and performance fit.

Prepare to have your stomach in your throat as he tests out his RVCA trunks at Cloudbreak last year.
