Meet Erica Hosseini, a gorgeous surfer and model. You can see photos, video and a biography of Erica below.
As a biography, Erica Hosseini was born on May 24, 1987 in Palm Springs, California. She has two siblings, a brother, Tyler, and a sister, Megan. She comes from a family of athletes and was introduced to a wide variety of sports at a young age. Her mother is a former ski instructor and taught her to ski at the age of 2. She was water skiing and mountain biking by the time she was 4. Their family moved to Newport when she started school but she didn’t start surfing until she was 11, when she got her first surfboard.
She started competing in the National Scholastic Surfing Association (NSSA) at the age of 13. It wasn’t until the following year that she began winning some events. She entered her first pro event in April 2002, the Foster’s Cup at Lower Trestles, where she eventually won 2nd place and became the youngest surfer (male or female) to make the final of an ASP pro event. She won $900 and gained a lot of media exposure. This led to some major sponsorships. In 2003, she won 5 NSSA titles – Southwest Open Conference, Explorer Conference, Regionals, NSSA National Open Women’s Title, and The Governor’s Cup.
In 2004 she finished 2nd in the Nationals Open Women, 1st in OP Pro, and a 3rd place bronze medal in the ISA Jr. World Championship in Tahiti.
In 2005 she won 1st place at the Volcom Championships, 1st at the U.S. Championships, and 4th at the Target Pro Jr.
