Ashley Lloyd Thompson – Single Wave Thursday. One Ride, No Music, Just Surfing.

Single Wave Thursday featuring Ashley Lloyd Thompson on Jettygirl Online Surf Magazine. Ashley Lloyd Thompson - Single Wave Thursday. One Ride, No Music, Just Surfing. Women's Surf Movies on Jettygirl Online Surf Magazine One of my favorite Jettygirl days was the one I spent with surfer/shaper/musician, Ashley Lloyd Thompson, at her home in Santa Cruz, California. Watching the ultra-smooth surfing styles of Ashley and her husband, Alex, was a refreshing change of pace. If filming the two of them drawing clean lines in the water wasn't reward enough, I was blessed even more with a home-grown salad and an impromptu live music performance after the session. It was an epic day through and through! Thank you for stopping by for another installment of Single Wave Thursday. As always, thank you for your support of Jettygirl. None of this would be possible without you, our dear readers.

Surf Photo Friday featuring Margaret Seelie and Ashley Lloyd on Jettygirl Online Surf Magazine

Surf Photo Friday – Get Stoked on Lady Shapers

Surf Photo Friday featuring Margaret Seelie and Ashley Lloyd on Jettygirl Online Surf Magazine Surf Photo Friday - Get Stoked on Lady Shapers | Words and Photos by Margaret Seelie As a kid, my bedroom in Ohio was plastered with Roxy ads depicting chicks in bikinis shredding on shortboards. When I arrived on the West Coast in 2009, I was twenty-seven, and ready to start surfing. After wrestling with the Pacific for a few months on a rented foam board, I couldn't fathom how the shortboarders of my youth surfed those tiny boards. I started watching longboarders finesse across the faces of waist-high waves, and for the first time I knew what kind of surfer I wanted to be. Looping the film Dear & Yonder almost constantly in my apartment in San Francisco I also discovered surfboard shaping. I started checking out boards, finding shapers I liked, and asking surf shops if they carried any boards that were shaped by women. It wasn't until 2013 that I saw one of Ashley Lloyd Thompson's surfboards at Mollusk Surf Shop. Looking up at that towering turquoise board, it was the most immaculate surfboard I had ever seen, and I wanted to know everything about it. A few months later, I had the good fortune of running into Ashley at Pleasure Point in Santa Cruz. She was carrying one of her boards down the beach, and I stopped her to gush about how much I love "Ashley's boards" (not recognizing her). She took my compliments graciously, introduced herself, and invited me to check out her shaping room sometime. Since then, she has been showing me how she shapes, and she introduced me to Tom from Screwball Industries who sometimes lets me watch him glass boards. I google "female surfboard shaper" often, which is how I recently found Teena McIlveen, an inspiring glasser in Australia. Teena goes by the moniker, The Lady of Many Colours, because she mixes psychedelic tints into her resins that create awesome tie-dye patterns on the boards she glasses. I imagine there are more women out there in the surfboard industry, and I look forward to the day when I look up "women making surfboards" and hundreds of names appear. Until then, please join me in getting stoked on lady shapers! Margaret Seelie and Ashley Lloyd shape a surfboard. Ashley Lloyd Surfboards.
