Last month, I had the pleasure of attending the 2015 Global Wave Conference. It covered everything from conservation to health, economics to oceanography – with speakers including big name surfers Greg Long, Tom Curren and Ramon Navarro.
However, I found one fundamental element was missing from this unique collection of voices – women.
While the conference audience was roughly an even mix of men and women – there were 40 male speakers and only four women. Just four.
