Iran’s First Female Surfers Are Breaking Ground & Braving Waves

Iranian pro snowboarder Mona Seraji, Iranian diver Shalha Yasini, and Irish pro surfer Easky Britton are the first women in Iran to take up surfing. Marion Poizeau’s documentary “Into The Sea” follows the women’s adventures as Britton teaches Yasini and Seraji to surf in the Baluchistan region of the country. After having such a great time taking on the sport together, the ladies founded Waves of Freedom, a surf club that teaches women and girls to surf as a form of self-empowerment and creative freedom. The fascinating film is available to stream on iTunes! [Messy Nessy Chic]
