Maddi (8) on the beach of San Sebastian: She surfs 7 foot waves and rips them hard. She competes in various competitions and wants to do it for life. Surfing is not about strentgh, but courage and will.
How come surfers are portrayed as bold, huge man-guys? Reality at Zurriola beach at 7 feet @ 13 seconds proves: It’s totally different. Girls are gaining ground in surfing and they surf the same stuff as the boys. Period.
What’s an adventure for some, is another break for her: Jeni works in an archive for old 8mm movies in the municipal film archive. And when the winds are right and waves are on, she’s there to surf. And in contrary to her hesitation, we think she’s pretty photogenic.
