Women On Waves is going VIRTUAL
Women on Waves (WOW) amateur longboard surf contest is not letting 2020 take them down. Instead, they are going virtual and are focusing on raising awareness about a subject that speaks close to our hearts: #SurfingForDiversity.
WOW’s mission is to create and promote participation of ALL women of ALL abilities in the sport of surfing.
“The unfolding events in our country has made us aware that we need to do more to become active allies in promoting diversity and inclusiveness in the surfing community. We need to take more proactive steps to amplify the our core mission message that we include **all women** — all backgrounds, colors, identities. ” — Women On Waves
As a start, this year’s main beneficiary is Brown Girl Surf, an entity that promotes inclusivity in the sport of surfing.
Join WOW and help spread the message about diversity in surfing. You can participate from ANYWHERE in the world when you register at womenonwavessurfcontest.com and they will ship you a WOW 2020 Kit (quantities are limited, so sign up soon).
Included in your kit are:
