A visually stunning journey across the world’s oceans, featuring soulful female surfers who are living their lives with purpose
Women Making Waves is a celebration of the sisterhood of surfing, featuring extraordinary women from Australia, the United States, Senegal, Japan, France, the Philippines and beyond. Author Lara Einzig profiles twenty-six inspiring female surfers from around the globe - from activists to artists, breaking new ground on land and finding purpose, healing, joy and community in the water.
There is Maya Gabeira, a Brazilian woman who surfed the biggest wave in 2020; Bonnie Wright, the British actress, activist and author; Mexican Risa Mara Machuca, who runs a free surfing camp for local children; and Zara Noruzi, an Iranian exile who found peace on the water in Australia.
Through candid interviews on the transformational power of surfing, with immersive photography of beautiful beaches, surf shacks, and favorite breaks, Einzig captures the life-altering strength and resilience that these women discover in their connection to the waves. The transporting writing and imagery capture the innate, spiritual essence of our connection to the ocean, inviting us all to paddle out.
