Rider Check In with Allison Hansen
Allison Hansen has been on the push for a couple years now. Spending countless hours behind her Heyday Boat shredding. She has a solid crew of riders always on the boat and the best rope fetcher I have ever seen! She stays super busy with work, riding, the gym and running her own clothing and swimsuit line. You can keep up with Allison on Instagram at Allisonrain3.

AH: The new year has been great. Working hard and going hard in the gym. Waiting for some nicer weather and to fully recover from surgery I had in December to get back on my board!
P5: With Covid-19 a hot topic topic, What were your thoughts on the 2020 contest season?

P5: What does a day in the life of you look like right now?
AH: I usually get up at 4:30 am and go workout. Then I work from 7am to around 5pm and depending on the time of year and the day I either run errands or try to get out and get a set behind the boat. Weekends consists of Wakesurfing when the weather is good!

P5: What board and size are you riding? What was it about this board that helped you decide it was the one?
AH: I have ridden the phase 5 Matrix for the past 3 years. This board is my all time favorite . Perfect for an intermediate to advanced rider and good for all tricks!
P5: What or who influences your riding and style?
AH: I love being on the water and being with close friends and family on the boat. It’s my time to relax and my favorite thing to do. My brother and I have taught each other everything we know and we have our own style.
