Surf Life: Women Who Live to Surf and Create

Thames & Hudson will publish SURF LIFE: Women Who Live to Surf and Create by Gill Hutchison on May 2, 2023. ENTREE has read an advance copy of this book and we loved it. So will you.

The women of SURF LIFE are strong, independent, and resilient—incredible surfers who live, work, and create on the coast. They are connected to their community and well-respected in their fields. In this eye-opening book, 28 Australian female surfers, from Tasmania to Noosa, share their stories and provide advice to new surfers, discussing their lives by the sea, their experiences learning to surf, how surfing influences their creative processes, and what they fear about surfing (not just the sharks). They include longboard champion and environmental activist Belinda Baggs; professional surfer Lucy Small, cocreator of the Equal Pay for Equal Play Campaign; and popular surfing podcaster Lauren Hill. The book also explores various aspects of the relationship between motherhood and surfing: whether or not to surf while pregnant; taking one’s children along to surf and opportunities for mother-child bonding; and long car rides to the seashore. With stunning photography and in-depth interviews, SURF LIFE showcases these women’s creativity and costal lifestyles. It offers inspiration and escapism for those living in cities, dreaming of crashing waves and blue skies, and is perfect for those who have taken up surfing and love being in the water.
