I have been thinking a lot about this lately. I am tired of seeing young twenty-somethings with perfect bodies in tiny bikinis advertise for women’s surfing. This is not to take away from being beautiful, or young, and most of these girls are killer surfers, but I would just like some equal representation. I also wonder who they are marketing to, certainly not real surfer girls. As a fourty-ish athletic, but not perfect bodied surfer, I am not interested in bikini bottoms that ride up my butt, triangle tops that fall off when I wipe out, or wetsuits that don’t keep you warm. Let’s let the surfing do the talking and maybe bring some realism to women’s surfing apparel. Thank you Pauline Ado for starting the conversation.
