In the last 30 years, Surfing World has been always very male dominant with very few percentages of women.

In the last few years, a lot of progress is coming on the way and women are stepping up to the plate: they are likely to brush off inequality in the sport, because of the notion that a woman isn´t physically strong enough to be considered a professional.

They still have to fight stereotypes and
sexism when they’re looking for a fair shake at surfing. Even though female surfers
could be weaker in terms of strength, they make up for it by being resilient,
determined, and smart, all fundamental qualities to be able to practice this sport.

Women have indeed demonstrated to have skills and have proven many times that
they should be legitimized as competitors, and the industry is starting to take notice of
it. Just think that not so long ago, there was not a good deal of events that allowed
female surfers· luckily, today there are many top competitions that let both men and
women.

 

Tenerife and more specifically Playa de las Americas are concrete examples of how
many talented women are currently dominating the scene.

Here´s a special list for you with the best
female surfers in town!
