The pathway for women to make a career as a professional athlete has been a struggle in all sports, including surfing. To honor those women who were early pioneers in the field, the Huntington Beach Art Center will be exhibiting “Women of Surfing: Art & History” to coincide with the start of the US Open of Surfing. The showcase includes surfing related art, historic surfing artifacts and photographs which illustrate the history of the efforts for equal recognition in the sport. Efforts, which should be noted, are relevant today with men’s magazines and sponsors rating women surfers by their appearance more than how well they shred in the water.
