SURFER, WRITER & PRODUCER
Lauren L. Hill is a surfer and writer who has spent the past decade exploring new waves and documenting burgeoning surf cultures around the world through an eco-feminist lens. She is a Patagonia ambassador and host of The Waterpeople Podcast. In 2020, Lauren published her first book, She Surf: The Rise of Female Surfing, a celebration of the women currently stretching the boundaries of the sport and art of wave riding.
Lauren will be presenting ‘Reweaving Our Stories’:
Our stories define us and connect us; they can shape our sense of self and belonging.
The stories of surf culture have too often excluded too many. Besides being a professional longboarder, Lauren Hill develops projects that revolve around the power of storytelling to build community and inspire action to protect our planet. She is a senior writer for Surfing World Magazine and contributor for major surf publications in the US and Europe. Her book She Surf: The Rise of Female Surfing was called “the definitive anthology of female surfing.”
Join this session with Lauren to delve into the ancient stories of women’s surfing, and to explore your own surfing family tree.
Suitable for ages 13 years and older.
