26-year-old Sarasota native and bikini model Shawn Dillon trades her bathing suit for the title of Playboy's Miss February, 2013.

Not only is Dillon a welcomed addition to the pages of Playboy, she is also a premium example of the kind of beautiful women raised in the Florida sun. Growing up near the ocean and with a lake for a backyard, she is a fisher, a surfer, a certified scuba diver, and a wakeboarder. As an ode to her aquatic lifestyle, she has two tiny tattoos of a shark and a scuba diver on her feet. Dillon is also no stranger to showing off her slender, tanned body for the camera. She has won several major bikini competitions and she is a featured model for the couture bikini company based locally in Belleair Bluffs, FL:

For her Playboy pictorial, Dillon went down to the Florida Keys where Tony Kelly shot the sun-kissed beauty in her natural setting: on the water wearing as little as possible. The spread even features a picture of Dillion wake-boarding while wearing nothing but sunglasses and a smile.

With this pictorial, Dillon joins a growing list of playmates with connections to Tampa Bay:

Miss March 2010, Kyra Milan
Miss July and August 2009, Kristina and Karissa Shannon
Miss October 2007, Spencer Scott
2006 Playmate of the Year, Kara Monaco
Miss November 2005, Raquel Gibson
Miss October 2002, Teri Marie Harrison Rose
Miss June 1993, Alesha Marie Oreskovich
Miss April 1991, Christina Marie Leardini
Miss September 1991, Samantha Leah Dorman
Miss July 1986, Lynne Austin (the original Hooters girl).
