Alana on The Search in the City
After successfully re-qualifying in Europe for the ASP World Championship Tour in 2013, Alana embarked on another Search through the big city. She had some downtime between the completion of the World Qualifying Series and a trip to Bali for Rip Curl Design Camp, where she'll work with Rip Curl product managers and designers from across the globe on inspirations for her next line of Alana's Closet signature swimwear, as well as provide feedback to the team to create the most functional, and fun, line of products yet.
The New York trip wasn't all sightseeing and relaxing though, as she had a stacked schedule of appointments with media eager to pick her thoughts on the World Tour, her signature line of swim now in its third year, and how she manages to balance a busy schedule of modeling, traveling, and competing at the top level.
We did manage to fit in a little fun though.
Alana emulated Serena van der Woodsen waiting for Chuck Bass at Top of the Rock at the Rockefeller Center, with the most breathtaking views of the entire city; we made a quick trip to the trendy Boulevard in SoHo to shop, and had some mind tricks played on us by illusionist Dan Sperry at Times Scare, located in the infamous Times Square. Stay tuned to the Rip Curl network (@ripcurl_usa on twitter and instagram) for her Maxim TV, Yahoo Sports, and Teen Vogue appearances just to name a few!
