Give thanks for this day among humans worldwide. By the time this day came to fruition, there were more than 10x the number we estimated paddling out for police brutality and the murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor (happy heavenly birthday) and Ahmaud Aubrey.

Today, we stand with ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ธ for peace.

I will never forget this moment in time. I noticed today that it was a year to the date of when Khadjou and I walked into the offices.

Black Girls Surf is 10 this year! ๐ŸชธโœŠ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’™

Weโ€™re going to post flashbacks all June.

June 5, 2019 and I walked into the in Santa Monica, CA not knowing what was in store for our future.

Thanks to , and team we were able to speak candidly on the needs of the BIPOC surf community. This visit would change the course of the imagery in surfing which was our mission.

No one before us had a plan and spoke directly to power on what needed to change in professional surfing when it came to people of colorโ€ฆno one.

As former President Erik Logan said, โ€œRhonda, doesnโ€™t want us to TELL her what we can do. She wants us to SHOW her.โ€

Looking at the landscape now with all the BIPOC groups and clubs formed since gives a sense of pride and honor.

Here we are again, one of our girls disappointed by the same federation who blocked Khadjou Sambeโ€™s Olympic dreams. This federation has had multiple chances to work with professionals on obtaining funding yet continues to NOT do so based on xenophobia and misogyny.

PRIDE OVER COUNTRY. Sounds familiar๐Ÿค”

I canโ€™t imagine this federation being in charge of the Dakar 2026 Youth Games.

ALL surfing federations and associations should be audited each year by the International Olympic Committee not the International Surfing Association.

Training funds should be pulled by the IOC when federations arenโ€™t in compliance by the rules and bylaws set by and agreed upon by the ISA.




This is awesome! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ
