A SUNSHINE Coast woman has launched what is believed to be the first females-solely surf and adventure excursions. There’s a unique freedom in being the solo feminine surf gypsy. More often than not, I’m the one woman in the water, and over time I’ve discovered the importance of catching the first wave I paddle for and using it well; as long as I pull that off, my proper to waves is as legit as anybody else’s on the market, native or not. And because I paddle out alone, I am granted a (sometimes grudging) spot in lineups where I’ve seen non-local guys actually get socked in the face just for showing up. Being a woman on a solo mission brings with it an sudden credibility in overseas waters, solidified by the truth that I’m a good enough surfer (not great mind you, however I hold my very own). Regardless of its occasional loneliness, solo surf gypsyhood has opened extra doorways – and lineups – than ever would have been attainable if I might travelled with mates or companions.

At one level last year, somebody pressed me to clarify why I used to be so prepared to depart my home, to start out over once more, to do it alone, to threat being lonely in a overseas place. In the second, I struggled to completely articulate what drives me to keep uprooting myself. I’ve found the logic behind it to be utterly inexplicable to non-surfers; outside the tribe, the visceral want for surf appears frivolous, juvenile even. However it’s actual, this drive to see as a lot of the planet as attainable, to paddle every wave-producing ocean and sea, to befriend people whose lives differ greatly from my very own. And if it’s merely a question of whether to go alone or not go at all? No hesitation – I’m all in.

I ran down the hill to Saints one current night, the road busy with folks heading residence from work. I may really feel their eyes on me as I ran, and I imagined what they were seeing: lengthy hair streaming out behind, shoulders strong and square, my board tucked against my physique with practiced familiarity. I grinned at being this lady who runs barefoot to the sea, who will throw herself off the rocks and paddle out alone. So grateful to have discovered this surf gypsy’s life, and so stoked to be dwelling it in Africa…for now, anyway.
