First Waves - The Stories Behind Amazing Women Surfing
At HEXA Surfboard we want to simply reconnect surfers with their roots and values, and being inspired and share stories is a first step towards a more coherent world.
On the occasion of International Women's Day on March 8th, we would like to highlight inspiring women who have one day taken up surfing.
We believe it is essential to have role models, representative of our diversity, to encourage women and girls to take the plunge, and take their first waves.
From this idea was born FIRST WAVES, a format where female surfers, both amateurs and professionals, simply tell us about their first relationship with surfing and how it has changed them.
They are beginners, professionals, activists, mothers, students... They are all different but they share the same passion, surfing. And they could be you!
