“Want to see me fall really hard?” Anastasia Ashley surfing at P-Pass in Pohnpei.

“Want to see me fall really hard?”

The question popped up early in the morning on Anastasia Ashley’s Twitter and was followed up on Facebook, Instagram and elsewhere as the day progressed. Our favorite part of the video is that Anastasia doesn’t bail out at all but is 100% committed to making the drop. You surely remember a nasty wipeout like this one so we asked Anastasia if she got hurt in the process.

“It knocked the wind out of me for sure.” Anastasia explains, “When my face hit the water it felt like someone slapped me really hard. I got sucked under for a while but I was fine. I had a bit of a headache though, lol!”

We’d probably be running for the hills after this back-twisting tumble but Anastasia wasn’t fazed at all.

“It definitely rattled me a little bit …but it was the morning of the best day of the swell so I was pretty hyped to get some waves. I ended up getting some of the best barrels of my life.”

Given how great this wipeout is, we can’t wait for the follow-up clip that Anastasia will be releasing soon of the ones she made out there. We’ll keep you posted as soon as it’s in our hands.

About six years ago I posed the question on Jettygirl about Anastasia Ashley being the “most famous surfer in the world.” It was a simple question based on results I was seeing on various search engines at the time but I was taken to task by numerous people both online and off for daring to post such a thing. Fast forward to this morning and a quick search garnered the same results with Anastasia’s name coming up twice as much as even the 11x men’s world champ, Kelly Slater, who’d I’d assumed would be the most famous surfer of all-time. Anastasia Ashley…12,700,000 results and counting…

Whether it’s due to her appearances at Backdoor or Waimea, throwing out the first pitch at sold-out Major League Baseball games, being followed around by MTV’s World of Jenks or her recent bikini-clad highlight in Playboy, Anastasia is taking a different approach to her pro surfing career and she’s succeeding at it quite well.
