Women have been board riders since the beginning of time. From Hawaiian surfers in Duke Kahanamoku’s era to modern-day stand up paddle, wakeboard, and skimboard riders across the globe - female board riders are a pillar of strength in their communities and deserve recognition for their impact. To honor that strength, we want to take a moment to give credit where credit is due by celebrating some of the most influential women in board riding history! Whether you're her parent or mentor rooting from afar or you hit the waves together - this tribute is sure to make any female board rider proud. So come along with us as we dive into an inspirational journey through stories of courage and dedication -- cheers for these powerful women!
Riding The Rhythms is a film that will leave you feeling full of adrenaline and inspired to hit the waves. This is no ordinary surf flick - this one is all about celebrating the women who rip year-round in New Jersey. It's a testament to the girls who prove time and time again that they can hold their own in the water and have a blast while they're at it. What sets this film apart from the rest is that it was created by women, for women, and it is a true celebration of the power of female community. The world premiere at the Baronet theater at the Asbury Hotel was a roof-raising, laughter-filled event that had us feeling all kinds of emotions.
If you're looking for a film that will make you feel empowered and give you all of the good vibes, you won't want to miss this one. Our team was thankful to attend this event together and to meet all of the rad female movers and shakers in the NJ surf scene. Huge thanks to @wave.maiden productions, @spaceofbalance, the riders and everyone involved for bringing this gem to the big screen. We are soo inspired.
Women have been pushing boundaries in the board riding industry for centuries, and this film is just one of many examples honoring their efforts. Riding The Rhythms features some of the most incredible female shredders you will ever lay eyes on, and there has never been so much energy around a surf movie release! Each and every performance was electrifying, showing just how far these women have come.
What's also truly special about this production is that it was made possible because of a tight knit group of female creatives coming together to support each other. We must continue to support our sisters in the sea - not only can we create amazing wave-filled stories like this one, but we have the chance to keep encouraging each other as a powerful collective force. Now that's something worth celebrating! If you haven't seen the movie yet, do yourself a favor and go experience it for yourself. If you have, who are some of your favorite riders?
