LOCATION: Hawaii

WHY YOU NEED TO WATCH: Even though she is no longer on the championship tour and not as involved in surfing as she used to be, Alana's life remains centered around the ocean.

Her vlogs give insight into her spontaneous day-to-day life with her son Banks. Surfing comes second, but it's good sometimes to remind ourselves that there are other important things in life.
