I just keep diving into worlds I know nothing about today, next stop being surfing. I couldn't tell you if Anastasia Ashley is a great surfer or just an okay surfer or possibly even the greatest surfer living. The only thing I'm qualified to tell you is that she looks damn good in her surfing gear, and really, what more could you ask for in a beautiful surfer babe?
I think the extent of my surfing knowledge comes from Point Break, and that's just about the worst place you can get your surfing info from. That movie plays fast and loose with physics and characterization and common sense, so there's probably not a ton of verisimilitude in the surfing sequences. Nevertheless, it's the gold standard for surfing ephemera in my mind.
Anastasia seems like she'd be right at home on a board next to Johnny Utah and Bodhi and all the other guys. Anthony Keidis was in there, I think. He got shot in the foot. James LeGros, maybe. Anyone remember him? He was apparently cast to be a spoof of Brad Pitt in Tom DiCillo's Living in Oblivion. Check it out some time, it really comes together once you know that's what he was being directed to do.
