By the time she was 25, Stephanie Gilmore already had five ASP World Title trophies sitting on her mantel. Today she's not just one of the most dominant world champions ever, but she has become a very visible spokeswoman for women's surfing as a whole, using her influence to infuse the sport with fun and irreverence. Outside of the competitive environment, she dabbles in fashion, art and music and has modeled for magazines such as Vogue, elevating her profile even more.
