From Australian surfer Lauren Hill.

This title hails the women and girls, past and present, who are engaged in expanding the art of surfing. An exciting reflection on what it means to be a female surfer and what it means to be moved to action by the beauty of the sea. Through exclusive interviews and evocative imagery, the book travels from the iconic waves of Hawaii to remote locations in Morocco. Learn about the forgotten stories of Polynesian surfing princesses, pioneering wave riders from the 1960s, and the contemporary movers and shakers shaping the scene.
