Having surfed for over 15 years, as a Surf Coach for 12 years and being appointed Course Presenter for the International Surfing Association, I ( @salty_sandy_happy )have never felt that my gender has played a role in my surfing journey. I have never specifically felt intimidated because I am a women and I don’t feel that anyone has tried to make me feel less of a surfer because of my sex.
My ability and confidence in my own surfing, my personality, my own strength and resolve to improve and get past hurdles is what defines my surfing, yes I have had wobbles but so too has the man next to me asking ‘ how the devil do I get back in’. All our classes are never designed to divide the sexes, but to get all surfers regardless of gender to surf together with mutual respect and knowledge that being a man or a women doesn’t make you a better surfer, time in the water does! What’s your opinion? 📷 of Junior Surf Club, earlier in the year, fun for all!
