Waves of Freedom

Waves of Freedom

Surfing as a tool for gender engagement and gender equity across cultures, strong female role models and leaders in surfing and self-empowered individuals who are active agents of change in their communities, and beyond.

Waves of freedom is founded on the type of freedom Persian mystic and poet Hafiz described as the power of realising our own inner truth and “letting the soul unfurl its wings.” The core of Waves of Freedom is how surfing can become a medium to empower those who are most vulnerable in society, in particular women and girls. Why surfing? Surfing is not just a sport but a lifestyle and an art-form synonymous with freedom and creative self-expression.
