At FreshSurf we came across a funny video of the H-Bay Women’s Surf Team. The girls have been sick of the way women are portrayed in surf movies or -spots. On a waveless day they filmed this videso spotaneously. And if you watch the videos of Roxy and Co. they are right. Very often producers are making female athletes into objects, rather than portraying them as the great athlets they are.

Sometimes film-makers make it look like even female pro surfers can’t surf. They make them run down the beach freshly showered, with short boards without wax or a leash. Followed by close-ups of naked bodyparts and glistening bracelets. But where is the sport? Wouldn’t it be way cooler to see the girls rippin’, wipe out or check out the waves before a session? Just, reality 😉
