Venus Goes Gidget is all about empowering women to and through surfing. For us, surfing is a beautiful way to connect back to nature, learn something new and above all to gain confidence and self-esteem.
That’s why, for the past few years, we’ve interviewed lady surfers in our ‘Great Gidget’ blog series hoping to inspire you by showing women like you and me and their love of surfing. Real women…rather than pro-surfers or the highly sexualised “surfer beach babes” as frequently portrayed in the majority of (surf) media.
Now we’ve taken our Great Gidget Series to video to capture the spirit of Venus Goes Gidget. In our Great Gidget video series, we show ‘real women’ and what surfing means to them. And by doing so, we hope to encourage ladies of all shapes, sizes and ages to give surfing a go.
Special thanks to Gidget Ann for being our guinea pig in our pilot and the very talented videographer and photographer Michaela Skrovanova @mishku for putting this together with us.
