Ashley has remained undefeated for nearly two years and this year she has continued to push the limits of competitive wake surfing. So far this year all first place finishes: AZ Wake Surf Open, Ladies First ATX, Supreme Wake Surf Championship and now she has claimed the title- 2015 USA National Champ. She is the first girl ever to land a surf style “big spin” – a shuv body varial 360. A big month for Ashley who, on Saturday in Fort Worth, Texas, took first place at the US Open of Wake Surfing hosted by Tige Boats. Two years in a row Ashley has dominated this event and North Texas where she represents DFW Surf. Congrats also to Team Riders Parker Payne (3rd in surf and skim) and Perry Morrison (1st in Juniors).
Ashley was featured on this month’s cover of Boarders Magazine. Ashley-Kidd-Boarders-MagazineHere she is boosting a huge air on her home turf- Lake Austin, TX, near the 360 bridge. Incredible surf style and some of the biggest airs in the industry (including mens), Lake Austin is where Ashley started and blossomed her career as a professional wake surfer. Growing up Ashley got into wake surfing under the influence of her brother in Corpus Christie. It all started in 2009 and then she started competing in 2010 and one of her first contests was in Austin at Barrel Boss hosted by Sail and Ski. Check out Ashley in the Austin, TX issue- “The Roots of Inland Surf Sports” along with other athletes and pioneers of wake surf and stand up paddle in Central Texas along with Barrel Boss and Tyler’s Dam that Cancer.
