Surf Like A Girl (Yes, It’s A Good Thing)
Like a kitten in a knitting circle at Nike’s new all-female surf movie, Leave A Message….
After watching the Leave a Message trailer, I posted something on my Facebook like, “OMG I’m so excited to see this surf film,” and by the grace of the surf gods, hours later I had an invite to see the OC premiere that Friday night. I have good friends, what can I say (Thank you Jen!!)
Showing up, I felt a little silly as I took my front row seat among the crowd of nine year old girls but my reservations went out the window when I first spotted Coco Ho. Almost peeing myself in excitement I thought, “No Elsa, you are right where you belong.”
Kudos to all the girls but hands down, my favorite part was Carissa Moore’s tow-in clip. Epic.
Afterwards I was lucky enough to participate in a Q&A with some of the girls. Meeting Coco Ho, Laura Enever, Malia Manuel, Monica Byrne-Wickey and Carissa Moore – what can I say other than I can now die a happy lady. Star struck? Me? Umm, YEAH!
Hope you get a chance to see the film too!!
Oh, wait, you can… Watch it HERE
As my coworker Morgan so perfectly put it, “Takes the sting out of the phrase ‘surf like a girl’.”
