Textured Waves is a surf collective that aims to introduce more women of color to riding waves. The co-founders of Textured Waves, Chelsea Woody, Danielle Black Lyons, Gigi Lucas and Martina Duran, are working to encourage and represent women of color who surf. Textured Waves recently partnered with the women’s surf brand Seaa on a short film called Sea Us Now, which reimagines vintage surf culture to include and highlight Black women, using imagery, music and poetic narrative. But Textured Waves is just getting started, they have some powerful new projects on the horizon.
