Anastasia Ashley and Lolo Jones have a lot in common. One has mastered the art of surfing atop waves in the ocean while the other has done the same for running fast on land. One has mastered the ocean and the other the earth, between the two of them they've mastered our whole planet!
Their similarities are actually in how they have managed their careers. While Anastasia has won multiple surfing titles dating back to when she was very young, her money is made by being a public figure and getting sponsorships. She is a talented athlete, but many talented athletes have come before her without achieving the same amount of fame or financial success. Anastasia learned that surfing might be her sport, but being an Instagram model is her profession. Lolo Jones is in a similar position, while she has won championships she is still given opportunities that athletes who have even greater accomplishments aren't given. Jones is given those opportunities because she's a social media master who knows what her followers want to see - her.
Both Anastasia Ashley and Lolo Jones have increased their earnings by posting photos of themselves through social media. This money allows them to travel the world, go to exotic beaches and then take pictures of themselves to post on social media. It’s a wonderful positive feedback loop we all get to enjoy!
15 Anastasia Ashley - Selfie in the Water
Taking a selfie like this is not recommended unless you have a waterproof camera. Luckily for everyone reading this article, it appears she has access to such a device.
Considering she started surfing at the age of five, Anastasia feels right at home in the water and comfortable in a bikini. There are times where she will rock a one-piece like you have never seen a girl rock a one-piece bathing suit before, and this surfer chick fills out a bikini nicely.
14 Lolo Jones - Putting Out "Thirst Trap Pictures"
Lolo Jones wasn't mincing words on her Instagram account when she posted this stunning picture. It appears as though Jones had just woken up and is completely unaware of the camera focusing its attention on her. Also if she's single, who's capturing this photo of her as she is just getting out of bed?
13 Anastasia Ashley - Just Waiting For A Wave
Clearly, when Anastasia Ashley took that social media course she learned what really butters her bread in this world. That isn't to say she isn't an accomplished surfer because she is, it is only to say that an accomplished surfer doesn't make nearly as much money as an attractive female on Instagram. That profession is far more lucrative than the surfing world.
12 Lolo Jones- Goes Pose
Just because she's a star athlete on land doesn't mean Lolo Jones doesn't like to go near the water. It doesn't hurt that her visits to the beach and exotic destinations allow her to post photos like the one above on Instagram.
As Jones mentions in the caption section of this post, she can't run like Pamela Anderson, probably because her figure isn't quite that of the ex Baywatch star. While Lolo might not be able to run like Pamela, however, it's definitely true that Pamela can't run like Lolo can.
11 Anastasia Ashley - Glowing Smile
Granted, Anastasia Ashley hasn't put on a lot of clothes in this picture, it's still more than we generally see on her. Still, Anastasia is able to show in this photo that she isn't considered the world's hottest surfer chick because she's in a skimpy bikini all the time, she's the world's hottest surfer chick because she's the world's hottest surfer chick!
Her face and demeanor seem to be those of someone who spends a lot of time in the sun, by the ocean, and living life as if it is one big vacation. She rarely seems upset or annoyed, which is perhaps because she's gotten the chance to live such an exciting life.
10 Lolo Jones - Can't Find A Shirt
It appears Lolo Jones did not pack properly for her trip. Here she is in a small hotel room somewhere and she's got no top to wear. Luckily she did manage to find her skin tight black jeans, and casually sideways baseball hat, however.
Jones seems to be completely unaware that someone has snuck into this tiny sized room with her and taken a picture. This seems to be a trend for Lolo, as she continues to post photos on her social media accounts which seem to apply she is alone in the room, only to leave us all wondering who it was that took the picture.
9 Anastasia Ashley - Looks Into Our Soul
It's easy to tell that Anastasia Ashley has researched how to be a model to some degree. While most of the photos she posts are not professional shoots, this one might as well have been. She's looking off into nothing as if she's posing for the cover of an album.
8 Lolo Jones - Looking For Wi-Fi
Check out those tan lines on Lolo! Clearly, she had spent part of this vacation far more covered up than she is in the above photo. As was mentioned at the beginning of this article, anyone who follows either of these two on social media knows they have a love of travel. This works out well since they both seem to spend the majority of their vacations in skimpy bathing suits and taking pictures of themselves.
7 Anastasia Ashley - Behind Anastasia's Behind
Anastasia Ashley's photographer must have an amazing, yet highly challenging, profession. The photographer, who is most likely on a board as well, has to both be able to stay afloat and operate a camera all while only a few feet away from the body part that shook the world when it twerked.
Precious few of her fans will not remember back in 2013 when Ashley incorporated a little twerking into her warm-up. The video of her doing so went viral and launched her fame outside of surfing circles.
6 Lolo Jones - About To Walk Into a Rock
In the photo above, Lolo Jones appears to be walking into a large rock, but hey, at least she's all smiles. She seems to have made the mistake of looking behind her to see if a photographer happened to be snapping a photo. As luck would have it there was a photographer doing just that!
5 Anastasia Ashley - Wakes Up Surfing
In this photo, Anastasia Ashley looks like she's just waking up in the middle of the ocean somewhere. Does Anastasia Ashley just doggy board out to the middle of the ocean to go to sleep at night? We'll never know for sure.
While the board isn't noticeable in the picture, you can see by her feet she's strapped to one. Speaking of boards she has ridden on, she won her first surfing tournament as a kid with a board she had found out by the trash. She would also "borrow" boards that people left down by the beach. Eventually, sponsors would come through for her and offer to buy her a brand new board of her own.
4 Lolo Jones - Bobsled Suits Are The New Yoga Pants
Boston: This weekend is expected to bring temperatures so low they might break all-time records... So wondering if it's ok if I compete in my bobsled uniform instead of my Track one? Catch the NB Indoor Track and Field Grand Prix live on NBC Sports Network from 4:00PM to 6:00PM on Valentine's Day. Can't wait to run!!!!!!!!
Lolo Jones selection to the USA bobsled team was not without some controversy. While the movie Cool Runnings proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that track stars can be used in bobsled, it didn't stop people from claiming Jones shouldn't have been part of the team.
3 Anastasia Ashley - On The Board
In the movie Zoolander, Ben Stiller's character debuted in his new pose "Blue Steel". The look was powerful enough to bring grown men to tears. What you see in the above photo is Anastasia Ashley's "Blue Steel". It is an homage to and the evolution of her twerking routine that launched her fame in 2013. By throwing on a golden bikini and sticking her behind out in such a manner, Ashley is giving us "Gold Twerk".
This photo in many ways, can be considered the Mona Lisa of Anastasia's Instagram modeling career. It has everything her career has been about; surfing and a bit of booty as well. Good for her.
2 Lolo Jones - Meditating & Hustling
It might seem as though Lolo Jones is in a deep state of meditation, but she's actually hustling a product. In the caption of this Instagram post, she mentions the Bella Beat LEAF. This is where Lolo Jones makes her money. She's not posting this because she bought the product, is enjoying it and just wanted to give it a shout out, she's doing it because they're paying her a good amount of money to do so.
1 Anastasia Ashley - Freshly Squeezed Pineapple
Most of Anastasia Ashley's more provocative shoots tend to involve her backside more than her front side, but she made an exception for this one.
You can see on Anastasia's face that she's sort of rolling her eyes at this shot a little. Yes. she looks good, and yes it's a beautiful shot. There is just something so typical about a woman posing with pineapples in front of her chest on a beach that is so cheesy though! It seems pretty obvious she feels the same way but is having a laugh at the cheesiness anyway.
It must be a fun life for Anastasia Ashley. She basically gets to travel around and surf while people take pictures of her. By the looks of it, she seems to be enjoying herself.
