Upcoming Event: Surfing Possibility with Brown Girl Surf!
Aloha Outdoor Afros!
Did you know that girls around the world from Brazil to the Gaza Strip are taking up surfing and changing the paradigm of women and sports? We’re following some of them on a cool project to bring their stories to the world. We would like you to be a part of it! Join Brown Girl Surf and Storytellers for Good for the KICK OFF Surfing Possibility fundraiser on October 11, 2012 in San Francisco, CA!
Bangladeshi surfer girls!
This Fall, I, along with my friend Cara of Storytellers for Good will be traveling to India and Bangladesh to meet South Asia’s first female surfers. We will share with you their stories and our journey through a series of blogs, short-form documentary profiles and photographs.
We will use the media as educational tools to speak on topics of female empowerment and risk taking in diverse cultures. We will also use it to inspire a culture of diverse, trailblazing women and girls to live in possibility of their dreams!
Our event, held in celebration of International Day of the Girl on October 11th in San Francisco, will be a memorable evening during which we’ll share our video trailer, sneak peak Skype interviews with some of South Asia’s first female surfers as well as details of our upcoming trip. We’ll also be raffling off some cool items like:
- A surf lesson for YOU and 3 friends from The Wahine Project! (Boards, wetsuits and instruction all included)
- Clothes and gear from Patagonia
- Brown Girl Surf gear
- $160 class pass to Aha Yoga in San Francisco
- One FREE surfboard ding repair
- Storytellers for Good T-shirts and more!
If you’re not able to join us that evening, we’d be so grateful if you can check out our trailer and support our Indiegogo campaign:
We hope to see you there!
