BLACK GIRLS SURF

In celebration of Black History Month we partnered with this totally rad organization committed to providing surf education, training, and opportunities to young black surfers everywhere.

Black Girls Surf was founded by US Coast Guard veteran Rhonda Harper, who noticed a lack of visibility within professional surfing and decided to become the black badass surf mentor that she didn’t have when she was young. To date, Black Girls Surf has sent hundreds of young black athletes to train and compete in surf competitions all over the world. Read more here.
