Strong is beautiful, too.
Thin is beautiful, too. Fat is beautiful, too. Or curvy, if you prefer. Thin is beautiful, too. Tall is beautiful, and short is beautiful, and stout is beautiful, and hairy is beautiful, and “conventionally” ugly is beautiful, too. We’re all good, if our hearts are good.
Girls can’t surf! …uh, Nevermind.
Surfing is beautiful. It’s also tough as hell. Same with these athletes.
Their beauty is full of strength. Obviously, male surfers show a lot of skin, too. In any case, check the videos–these are sexy, inspiring, literally awesome women.

90% of the comments online about these photos and videos are “wow.” But, a few are concerned about their sexuality. In response to a reader’s question:
Amen. I left out most of their overtly sexualized photos–and there’s a lot of those. Look at my ass! Look at my boobs! No: the photos I included were those that I thought showed their strength, skill, and, yes, their human beauty. They are in really good shape, and that’s inspiring and beautiful. For that matter, the gents are sexy, too, and show even more skin, often. Nothing wrong with beauty, as long as it’s not pinup stuff.
Check the videos, these women are inspiring, and have got the skills, as you say.
Love this video, love this song, love this.
