Surfing Was Historically Dominated By Men, But That Is Changing

Surfing has long been considered a male-dominated sport, but times are changing, and we at Backyard Ericeira are excited to witness the rise of female surfers taking on the waves. Our surf coaching programs and courses are designed for everyone, regardless of gender, to experience the thrill of the ocean and develop their skills in a supportive environment.

We believe that surfing is a sport that should be accessible and enjoyable for all. It’s not just about pulling off impressive maneuvers or chasing the biggest waves, but also about embracing the beauty and freedom that the ocean offers.

In this photo, one of our students, Anouchka, demonstrates her progress with a nice turn that captures the attention of fellow surfers paddling back out. Her success is a testament to the fact that great performances can come from anyone, regardless of gender.

We encourage all women interested in surfing to pursue their passion and showcase their talents on the waves. By fostering a more inclusive surf community, we can break down barriers and create a welcoming atmosphere for all surfers, irrespective of their background or experience level.

Join us at Backyard Ericeira Surf Programs and be part of the movement to make surfing more inclusive. Check out our surf coaching programs and courses, and get ready to improve your surf in Ericeira, Portugal.
