About She Surfs
Rawand is one of four girls learning to ride the waves of the Gaza Strip.
A 22-year old journalism student becomes India’s first female surfer. The first girls in the Gaza Strip are taught to surf amongst dropping bombs and flying bullets. A community of Muslim girls are rumored to have taken to the water in West Java as well, becoming the first female surfers in the history of their community. These are the extraordinary stories of ocean-loving girls breaking barriers around the world. These are the stories of Brown Girl Surf TM and will be featured in this section starting in 2012.
