I’ve actually shot the SbB Girls at that exact location many times. El Matador Beach - far north side at low tide. Malibu. House in back tips it off. You can only reach that spot at low tide through a passageway through a massive rock.
USA TODAY’s Tom Weir posts the first semi-nude shot (Surfer Claire Bevilacqua) from ESPN The Magazine’s “The Body” Issue, due out Oct. 9.
Michael McCarthy also has a list of those who will be posing, including Joba Chamberlain. Nude.
Highlights: Adrian Peterson, Dwight Howard, Gina Carano, Randy Couture, Laird Hamilton, Manny Pacquio, Jessica Mendoza
Lowlights: Chamberlain, Serena Williams, Mark Martin(!), Christina Kim (something about her I find cute though.)
McCarthy also reports Tiger Woods turned them down and Danica Patrick was never asked. (How did that come up?)
Patrick though, as I reported yesterday, will make an appearance in the issue.
