The 2013 Rockstar Energy Drink Miss TransWorld WAKEBOARDING Model Search presented by Supra Boats has finished, and we couldn’t be happier to announce Amanda Lewis as the winner. The 22-year-old model and surf shop employee got on our radar following the Nautique Wake Games earlier this season. She was working as a promotional model for Rockstar Energy Drink alongside 2012 winner Paris Nichole, who suggested Amanda send us a submission. She beat out hundreds of other contestants, and we were lucky enough to work with Amanda before she relocated from her hometown of Clearwater, Florida, to Southern California, where she will fill the growing demand for her talents as a model. Make sure to get to the King of Wake tour in 2014 to meet Amanda, who will greet you with a smile and an autograph at the Rockstar Energy Drink booth.
Congrats Amanda, were you surprised?
Ha ha yeah I was. Sean Dishman pulled me over in Seattle and told me he needed to talk to me and I replied “Okay!” I came back literally not even 10 minutes after because I was curious and he told the news : ) I smiled
How has your year been traveling to the King of Wake events with last year’s winner Paris?
Paris and I had so much touring together, from photo shoots at the stops to just being goofy on the tour bus. I’m happy to now call her one of my good friends.
Looking forward to wearing the crown next season on tour?
Ah so excited. So excited to work with such an amazing group of people and seeing all the fans again.
Did you enjoy the shoot for your pictorial?
Bill Doster is theeee man! I love seeing all his stuff with the guys. It was great shooting with him and his team.
We just caught you before your move out to CA, heading out to further your modeling career? Tell us more about that.
Started my modeling career in Tampa, Fl where I grew up when I was about 17 years old. When I was a younger I just loved photography and would admire and look up to so many models in and out of magazines. Then I finally got started. I’m so thankful for such an amazing family that has supported every step of the way and always will. I was signed out of modeling agencies out of Orlando as well and just from there worked my way up over the years and never gave up. I’m a strong believer and never gave up on my dreams. Now I’m here in Orange County, ca. It so amazing to see where life can really take you if you never hold back. I couldn’t be more thankful for my model Manager Crystal Cannon and Rockstar Energy Drink.
You won’t forget the little people when you make it big, right?
I’m just a little beach bum chasing her dreams and always will be : )
Where is your dream place that you hope modeling let’s you travel?
To be honest, everywhere. I wanna travel the wooooorld
