Shaper, surfer, artist, musician—Ashley Lloyd embodies every facet of the FOAM girl.

Lloyd has been featured for her surfing and shaping in Dear and Yonder and The Women and The Waves, two exceptional movies that explore the lives of progressive female surfers. Her signature touch can be found on Bing Surfboards, Rainbow Fins, and in the water when she's teaching surf lessons. Lloyd can also be found performing with her husband Alex Thompson in their “beach-folk” band, The Shapes. With everything she has going on, she does admit "life can get hard sometimes,” but true to her positive nature, she finishes by saying, “a great reminder was given to me yesterday: Soften. I like that.”
