Not Pretty Enough to Sponsor?

Sometimes we are sorely disappointed in the surf industry. BBC News Magazine shares a short documentary of bad-ass Brazilian surfer, Silvana Lima. Although she is Brazil’s number one surfer, she had trouble obtaining sponsorship because she didn’t have “model” looks. Attention should be paid to surfers with significant talent rather than basing sponsorship dollars on a pretty face.

Lei Days with Tatiana Weston-Webb

Tatiana Weston-Webb stars in Lei Days. Shot entirely on location in Maui after Tati advanced to the Quarterfinals in the 2015 Target Maui Pro.  As the youngest competitor on the Samsung Galaxy Championship Tour, Tati began the year as the 16th seed and put the world on notice as she steadily marched her way to an impressive 7th place finish. Lei Days aims to celebrate the one of a kind beauty and athleticism that is Tatiana Weston-Webb.
