There’s not much that Erica Hosseini can’t do. The 25-year-old Newport Beach native gained acclaim as a world-class surfer, but over the past few years she has added model, actress, hostess and techie to her impressive resume.
If you think your life is hectic, listen to all that Hosseini squeezes in: When she’s not shredding waves worldwide, Hosseini spends her time modeling for more than a half-dozen brands, filling in as a stunt double on 90210, filming a weekly action sports segment for GrindTV and working on her website, Twitter page and any piece of technology that she can get her hands on.
All of her pursuits require Hosseini to stay in peak shape, adding another facet to a lifestyle bursting with activity.
"It’s a constant battle," Hosseini says of the challenge of balancing her differing activities. "You’ve got to eat healthy, work out, even when you don’t want to. It’s the lifestyle that I signed up for and that makes me ultimately happy."
Hosseini has worked tirelessly on her brand, whether that means getting in shape for competitions and modeling shoots, or constantly updating her website (she is a self-professed tech geek). It is precisely that drive that has landed Hosseini in advertisements for Oakley, Casio and Sector 9 skateboards, among other brands.Full Story >>
