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.

    This is so true, I couldn’t say it any better! It should be about talent not looks!
