Through conversations, we can learn from others, reflect on ourselves, and better navigate life as women on the water.
On our podcast, Confessions of a Surf Lady, it's our goal to extend the conversation beyond the products we carry into a platform that can better represent you, the everyday female surfer. For each episode, we ask you, surf ladies all over the world, for confessions to topics specific to women's surfing and discuss those topics in a supportive and non-judgmental space.
Of the 17 episodes we've published we've had conversations with women who have started grassroots movements to olympic athletes and big wave surfers. We've covered serious topics like lineup politics to silly, but still very important, topics like "Do you pee in your wetsuit?"
Of all the amazing conversations we've had, here are the top 5 episodes surf ladies can't stop listening to right now. (These episodes have had the most downloads in the last 30 days)
