Wahine Surfing Hui

In October 2018, a group of women gathered in Shipwreck Bay, Ahipara, for a hui presented byHinemoanas Table: Positive evolution of Women’s Surf Culture in Aotearoa. We came with no ideas about what outcomes may arise, but instead a desire to celebrate those who had come before us, reflect on where we are now, and be open to what a positive evolution of womens surf culture in Aotearoa might look like.

We held open floor discussions on The Pioneers, Global Women’s Surf Culture, Professional Surfing, Women in Business, and Media. Through sharing surfing, stories, celebration, delicious food, and with a great diversity of knowledge wisdom and experience at the table, we had what can only be described as a positively transformative weekend.
