The Journey of a Pro Surfer | Alana Blanchard

Listen Now

In Episode #42, I caught up with pro surfer and vegan mother Alana Blanchard in Kauai, Hawaii. From when she was just eight years old, Alana had a dream to become a pro surfer, and she dedicated her life to turning it into reality.

We covered a lot in this episode: her relationship with Bethany Hamilton; the shark attack incident, how it affected her, and her journey to getting back in the water; the movie Soul Surfer that covered Bethany and Alana’s story; why she follows a plant-based diet; her pregnancy experience as a vegan, including what she ate, what food aversions she had, and what she supplemented with; how her baby son Banks is doing and her experience breastfeeding; what Alana and her partner Jack plan to feed Banks when he starts eating solids; and so much more. Connect with Alana on Instagram.
