We are inviting y’all to share PARTY WAVES!!! We are offering this zine as a space to share waves, share thoughts on sharing waves, share wave knowledge, share tandem wave/party wave imagery, etc.  In this issue, we will hold the theme of “When we surf, WE ARE”.

Culture Creation Through our Programs

BROWN GIRL SURF IS COMITTED TO CREATING A SURF CULTURE WHERE ALL PEOPLE FEEL WELCOME, INCLUDED, AND self-EMPOWERED. SOMETIMES THIS LOOKS LIKE HOLDING COMMUNITY SURF EVENTS, OTHER TIMES IT LOOKS LIKE ADVOCATING FOR ENVIRONMENTAL POLICIES OR FIGHTING FOR EQUITABLE BEACH ACCESS.

Our programs create a path towards a surf culture that celebrates our diverse experience as girls*, women*, and gender-expansive people of color – placing joy, community, and environmental reverence at the center – so that more of us can benefit from engaging in ocean play and connection.
