As an avid surfer and woman of color, when Rhonda Harper paddled out, she couldn’t help but notice the lack of representation in the water. It was this realization that lead her to start Black Girls Surf, a non-profit that supports girls and women with dreams of competing at the professional level. Through fundraising, her international non-profit has been able to send athletes to training facilities where they work with world-class surf coaches, ensuring they are prepared for the competitive landscape.
As partners, our goal is to amplify the mission of Black Girls Surf, accelerating the vision of more diverse lineups and contests around the world.
To honor our exciting and meaningful partnership, we’re launching a collection of surf-ready items including in-water performance leggings, board shorts, rashguards, and bikinis; the assortment will also feature dresses, fleece, hats, and — drum roll please — electric bikes. Proceeds from the capsule collection, which you can take a sneak peek at below, will go towards supporting Black Girls Surf’s efforts. The collection launches exclusively on Instagram on 2.15.22 (make sure to tune in at @hurley and @hurleywomen) and will be available for purchase on hurley.com on 2.16.22.
