Best Gals Club (2017 Edition)
11 of the hottest pro surfers’ girlfriends.
The internet was made to make your brain feel fuzzy.
A beautiful girl’s name isn’t spoken, it falls off the tongue with syllable taps. They stumble into lives, onto screens, high-gloss magazines, and are held at a far. At a space that makes them more desirable – that space of Relationship status: Taken.
We bring you the Best Gals Club 2017 (in no particular order), professional surfers better halves hotter than a red Fereira in Death Valley.
It’s okay, blush with envy.
There’s something about Spanish girls that sew needles through our hearts. Almudena, who graces the arm of Artiz Aranburu is undeniably gorgeous. Originally from Madrid, she spends her time in permanent high gloss on the covers of GQ, Cosmo, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar to list a few. And like, all that fall below, she possesses an Instagram worthy of getting lost in while your girlfriend watches a Kardashian spinoff and you question all of your life decisions leading up to this point in time. Oh, Miss Fernandez is also an eco-warrior, an ambassador for such projects as the Oceana Expedition, The Climate Project and Green Peace (we suggest you click this link).
Miss Osborne is currently bearing what will, without doubt, be one of the most beautiful beings to ever strut this planet. Julian Wilson and Ashley’s child will lace the contest scaffolding, will break hearts, and will probably surf better than your (or your future) child. Ashley is forever a Stab muse, as is Julian. We are unashamed at our attraction to handsome men, and our lust for beautiful women.
Bree is one of surfing’s many sweethearts. She’s a Newmark model, Eric Geiselmen’s hon, a professional surfer and has a wicked backhand (with her feet stuck in the wax). Do you love to bite off a bit more than you can chew? Us too! And Bree’s a delightful mouthful. For a truly wonderful, yet a little dated interview, give this link a tap.
Three to the beach and little air-revos might impress the groms at your locale. But, rushing over the ledge at Mavs gets the girls. Or, at least that may be the case for Wilem Banks, the lucky man behind the brunette stunner, Devon Powers, who spends her time time living a full-life of being drop-dead-gorgeous. Isn’t there a song about California Girls?
It’s not a Best Gals club without the wife of Patrick Gudang, Miss Hanalei Reponty-Gudauskas. The mermaid from the island of Tahiti. Hanalei is handy on a surfboard. Her long legs, blonde hair and figure is gorgeous sprinkled in sand and she runs a bikini and wetsuit line by the name of Abyss. “A collection of wetsuits and bikinis made for women who are tomboys are heart and believe the ocean is a magic place.” Adoration isn’t love, but it’s close.
Oh Im! Our rare flower in red dirt. We’ve called her hotter than Africa, watched her glisten in the Ments and get towed into caverns large enough to send grown men to the beach. This fisherman’s wife shares a ring with West Oz’s Cortney Brown and fits neatly into whatever backdrop she glows in front of. And quite frankly, we take any excuse to gush our undeniable affection towards one of the sexiest creatures to come out of the desert. Handheld fans aren’t required, however, they’re recommended.
Somewhere in this everlasting galaxy lives a beauty that only a man who suffers the world’s heaviest wipeouts could deserve. Niccolo the invincible’s wife, Jamie is simply divine. The two own a jewellery line, Solo Oro and their motto reads, “The golden life is to travel with love.” And that love of the two Sardinians is a flower too delicate to touch. Meanwhile, Niccolo’s life is a thrill too dangerous to seek.
Joanne is a mother and the lover of Lee Wilson. The two live on Bali. Lee surfs, does art and airs and tubes. Joanne’s from New Zealand, she models, she mothers, she’s effortlessly gorgeous and returns to this list of love and (occasional) jealously for the second year running. She’s the warm rain on a tropical day, unconscious of her mortal beauty.
Our affection for Harry Bryant increases with each passing day. As does our affection for a gal who appreciates a bowl cut sporting, tube shooting man. You know, one to aspire to be (bowl cut maybe not included). Kayla, is the only thing that makes Harry look better than a square wave over a shallow rock reef.
We’ll refrain from paraphrasing Clapton. But, Oh Leila Dee Thomas, who could not adore you. She’s as stunning on a longboard as she is running through crystalline waters next to her heartthrob boyfriend, Kiron Jabour. The two can be found galavanting in the nude all over their PR platforms. Her hazel skin, eyes and affinity with standing in a field of flowers bare are enough to get us on our knees…dang.
Michelle Randolf, the lady in love with Koa Rothman is classically gorgeous. Ruby-red lips, dark eyebrows, high cheekbones, and eyes that pierce into the very weakness of man. She’s hopelessly wonderful in every sense of the world. And we’re hopefully hopeless in every sense of romance. Have a scroll through her Instagram; she’ll liquify your heart.
