She Surf: The Rise of Female Surfing

$56
Size:

From its Polynesian origins to the beaches of California, the art of surfing has become a truly global phenomenon with millions of wave riders living to the rhythm of the tides. While surfing is usually told through a male perspective, women have long been nurturing their own water stories and claiming their rightful place in the world of this sport. She Surf hails the women, past and present, who define the art of surfing.

Travel with Stephanie Gilmore, one of the greatest surfers in the world set to represent Australia at the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games; meet Chloe Calmon, a Brazilian expert in longboarding or discover Ishita Malaviya, India's first professional female surfer and her impact on her local community. Thanks to evocative imagery and insightful text written by professional surfer Lauren L. Hill, this book travels from the iconic waves of Hawai'i to lesser-known surf destinations such as Taghazout and Tofino. She Surf also explores many other incredible surf spots in the Seychelles, along the Tuscan coastline in Italy, and in the French Basque Country.

Learn about the forgotten stories of Polynesian surfing princess, pioneering female wave riders from the 1960s, and the contemporary movers and shakers shaping the scene. She Surf is an exciting reflection on what it means to be a female surfer and how it feels to be moved to action by the beauty of the ocean.
