Sister Surfer

Elizabeth Pepin, Principal Photographer

Longboard pro Mary Osborne teams with surfer Kia Afcari to write this guide for women who surf, and, more importantly, for those women who have always dreamed of paddling out beyond the breakers and catching the ideal wave. Sister Surfer is more than a technical manual filled with gorgeous images. It is also an inspirational guide, a handbook to freeing the spirit and overcoming the barriers of the world and of the self.


Surfer Girls in the New World Order

Elizabeth Pepin, Principal Photographer

Author Krista Comer explores surfing as a local and global subculture, looking at how the culture of surfing has affected and been affected by girls, from baby boomers to members of Generation Y. She develops the concept of “girl localism” to argue that the experience of fighting for waves and respect in male-majority surf breaks, along with advocating for the health and sustainable development of coastal towns and waterways, has politicized women surfers around the world.


Surfing: Women of the Waves

Elizabeth Pepin, Principal Photographer

As the official counterculture sport of the 1960s, surfing was not just a sport but a lifestyle, one long, sun-drenched beach party with endless waves and music, as well as an unapologetically masculine culture. This notion has since been disproved by generations of amazing female surfers who have made an indelible mark on the sport. Surfing: Women of the Waves highlights some of these extraordinary women.
