Intimasea by Nathan Oldfield from The Seea on Vimeo.
"A wave is a special gift from the earth and when we get to feel it expressed through our bodies, through our minds, and through our spirits in a very feminine way, it brightens the water and it brightens the lineup. It uplifts the whole community of surfing and reminds surfers--men and women alike, that women are different ...that we are the dancers of the ocean." - Leah Dawson

Description 16 year old Gold Coast surfer, Holly-Daze Coffey, threads some clean barrels, lays down some solid rail work, and as the title indicates, punts and lands some impressive air-reverses. The young Australian is surely one to watch as women surfers continue to push the boundaries of performance surfing.

"First time at Mullaghmore for me. I can't wait to go there again and get better and bigger waves." - Justine Dupont Justine Dupont is without a doubt one of the best all-around surfers on the planet. She can throw big frontside airs on a shortboard, noseride like crazy on a longboard, and her big wave surfing is quickly becoming legendary. To top it off, she's one of the nicest individuals you cold possibly meet. Resources:
One thing I’ve noticed about many of my favorite surfers is how they can jump on just about any type of equipment and skillfully ride waves without missing a beat. Longboard stylist, Kassia Meador, is one of those multi-faceted surfers who can surf anything from a high-performance thruster, to a retro-styled twin fin, to a traditional single fin log. I’m not sure if she still rides them, but a number of years back, Kassia began riding a thin, finless, wooden board known as an Alaia.
If you’ve ever seen someone surf an Alaia, you’ll quickly realize that it is a completely different way to ride waves. I’ve seen many people give it a go, only to return to the sand deflated that they either couldn’t catch a wave or the ones they did catch resulted in wipeout after wipeout. For those who push through the initial challenges, however, the reward is a feeling of unadulterated speed, glide, slide, and freedom. On this particular wave in Encinitas a few years back, Kassia Meador glides into a fun, lined-up, glassy left. It’s really fun to watch the nuances that come into play on finless boards—case in point, the subtle drifting Kassia employs as she heads into her 360-degree spin. Landing a floater on an Alaia is no easy task, but Kassia effortlessly pulls one off to finish her ride.
Thank you for stopping by for another installment of Single Wave Thursday. As always, thank you for your support of Jettygirl. None of this would be possible without you, our dear readers.
