Bringing women together to share in surf, skate, yoga, enviroment, & empowerment.

With their environmentally-focused projects, their aim is to do their best to fight single-use plastic and marine pollution as well as raising awareness of how we can all work together to protect our planet and combat climate change. This specific event is helping raise funds not only for GRLSWIRLS Skate Mentorship Programs, but also Changing Tides female empowerment projects. Their aim is to connect with and support women of all sizes, shapes and backgrounds through our love for the ocean.

Untamed Daughters and GRLSWIRL are bringing women together not only from surf and skate but other sports from pro snowboarders (Elena Hight) to pro photographers. You will be meeting and hanging with incredible women who have paved the way in their given sports for women like us to feel safe to learn

At just 17 years of age, Malibu's Soleil Errico has become a World Champion of surfing.

At the 2018 WSL Women's World Longboard Championship, which took place in Taiwan, Errico eclipsed an international field of loggers in Jinzun Harbor's playful blue walls. She defeated fellow-Californian and 2015 World Champion, Rachel Tilly, in the final.

"I want to thank all of my friends and family, especially my mum and dad who have supported me so much to get here and done so much for my surfing career. There is no way I'd be the surfer I am today without my coach Taylor Jensen (Reigning Men's Longboard Champion), he is incredible. All of the women's competitors at this event are my idols and it's been an honour to surf with them all. My hometown of Malibu has had a tough time recently with the Fires and everything and I want to dedicate this to Malibu and I can't wait to bring it home."

Frankie Harrer joins the Crap® Surf Family

A fixture in Los Angeles' unique surf scene, Frankie is a pro surfer from Malibu, CA, known for her world class shortboarding and hard charging in waves of consequence.

Malibu's Soleil Errico just won the 2018 WSL Womens Longboard Championship at the Taiwan Open Of Surf.

The Aussie world-champion surfer has a weakness for the California coastline

“I always surf with a smile on my face,” Stephanie Gilmore says. And the 29-year-old world champion has every reason to grin as she goes after her seventh world title during the World Surf League tour. “Surfers are pro athletes and we train hard, but it’s also a culture and a lifestyle. We live and breathe it,” says the Australian. “The cool thing is: no matter how many world titles you win, you always have to evolve. No one can perfect surfing—it’s such a subjective thing—there are so many different ways to approach a wave. You’re always learning.” The two-time ESPY Award winner, who began surfing at age 9 and was a pro by 19, rents a place in Point Dume with her sister and friends anytime she’s in town. “Malibu really resonated with me,” she says. “Everyone’s got something going on, whether they’re musicians or artists or actors. There’s a creative energy there. It really embodies the true spirit of surfing.” Gilmore hopes to pack in a few surf trips between championship events, although she isn’t yet sure where her travels will take her. “We’ll keep an eye on swells and then it’s all really last second,” says the Roxy team rider, who is otherwise fiercely focused on the tour. “I’d love to win another world title.” She pauses, then slyly adds, “Or a couple more. I want to do this for the rest of my life.”
