We talk with Wahine Project director Dionne Ybarra who, raised in an inland Mexican American Farm worker family, discovered surfing at 38. Stoked but concerned the sport did not have a lot of people like her, she launched the Wahine – surfer girl – Project that has taught thousands of young girls – and some boys and adults – from Monterey to Mexico to Gaza and beyond how to overcome their fears and surf for themselves and the Ocean.
