Favorite Airwalk shoe? Airwalk canvas kicks.
Goals for the upcoming season? Reclaim my title at the women's pipeline contest, have fun, and push myself hard into bigger waves.
What’s the most ridiculous thing you have ever done in your Airwalk shoes? I have done so many ridiculous things in my Airwalk shoes, from hiking down a cliff with my board, to taking an overnight boat to a somewhat deserted island!
What is perfect happiness to you? Perfect happiness to me is surfing perfect waves all day and hanging out with good friends over some great food. Happiness is what you make it! It's all about being positive and happy in life :)
You live in both California and Hawaii. What do you like most and least about each location? I love how easy and convenient California is, it is so easy to go surf, skateboard, ride bikes, and even go snowboard all in a close area. The thing I hate is the cold water, even in the summer it sometimes gets really cold. For Hawaii I love how many good waves there are everywhere and the fact I'm always on a bigger surfboard. The thing I like least about Hawaii is the lack of things to do when it's flat (no waves).
What is your favorite old school Airwalk ad? My favorite old school Airwalk ad is from the Lambesis campaign with the housewife taking the shoe out of the Easy Bake oven. Classic, I would love to recreate this!
Where do you see the surf industry heading in the next couple of years? Definitely I think for women’s surfing the progression and the level keeps rising every year, it’s in an exciting stage right now and really fun to be a part of.
What classic shoe do you think Airwalk should bring back next? I think the classic ‘One’ is one of the all time best shoes and excited it’s being brought back soon!
What wave is on your bucket list to surf? Definitely Jaws, which I’m hoping to surf out there this coming winter, as well as I would love to go to Nias in Indonesia. For more about Anastasia Ashley, check out her website: AnastasiaAshley.com

Where do you see the skate industry heading in the next couple of years? The “core” skate industry is going to contract further as the sport continues it’s relentless progression toward the status of “mainstream”. People will continue to be more and more comfortable getting their skate gear on-line. Skateboarding will expand into more and bigger segments like freestyle and downhill.
