“You surf like a girl.”
This used to be a derogatory comment.
Not anymore. Thanks to pioneers like Missy Giove and Layne Beachley, women are pushing the limits in every extreme sports arena. EDGEtv has been humbled by the images and video content pouring in from our female influencers.
This issue is a salute to all women rippers. Check out what some of our she-warriors are up to!
Girl on a Wave
Sarah Hauser can ride a wave on anything – a surfboard, a SUP board, a windsurf board, probably even a cutting board! Sarah is the American Windsurfing Tour Champion and the subject of a documentary, Girl on Wave.
Hailing from New Caledonia, Sarah moved to Maui to realize her dream of becoming an all-around Waterwoman. She combines professionalism, incredible physical fitness, and a laid back attitude.
Ella Sorensen is 12-years-old and already the Amateur World Champion (beating women 3 to 4 times her age). Straight outta Minnesota, Ella is also a top-notch snowboarder while she waits for the lakes to thaw.
Read more about her visions for the future of wake, the way she got fed up with sitting on the sidelines watching her brother and decided to start shredding, and her pizza dilemma in a fresh EDGEtv article, Sibbling Shredders.
The Queen in the North
Jocelyn and Chris have released the holiday album, Still, which the Huffington Post describes as, “A deeply-felt holiday EP that’s as raw and enjoyable as cookie dough. This is music in its purest form.”
Light the fire, spice the eggnog, and listen to this smooth blues with beauatiful vocals and classic guitar tones.
Also check out this sweet article in the Women’s International Music Network.
Our favorite Jocelyn quote?
“I have an opportunity to walk out onto that stage and absolutely knock peoples’ socks off. Girl? I’ll show you ‘girl’.”
