theoceanisfemale "I begin my session with an inward prayer dedicating my surf to any woman who can't enjoy the ocean that day because of responsibilities, cultural prohibition, or fear, as well as dedicating my efforts to my mother in heaven. Then I power up and make the lifts big and beautiful right to the tips of my fingers... I can sense that some women in the line up look down on tandem surfing [but] once in a lift my poses take a considerable amount of strength and bravery, I'm not a passive hood ornament up there." - Tanya Parks @rebelwell #theoceanisfemale
