Anastasia Ashley Early Life & Education

Her parents were divorced when she was young. She moved with her family to Hawaii at the age of five. Where she began to learn how to surf because there were very few female surfers at that time.
I really wanted my own board, but my mom couldn’t afford to buy me one — they are pretty expensive — so I would borrow my guy friends’ boards,” recalled the 30 years old lady.
While she got the new sport on her own, at school, she attempted on different activities like a teen picking out a prom dress. Soccer, softball, track — you name it — none were a good fit.
“I knew I was athletic, but none of those other sports took, I was kind of clumsy,” Ashley said.
At the age of 21, she lost her mother. She did not talk about her mother’s failing health. Ashley even took awhile to tell her friend her mom had died following a three-year battle with ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, in August 2008.

Winning more contests led to more sponsors and eventually international events that meant she would have to leave high school after one year and enter a home-schooling program.
