About Us

Welcome to Black Girls Surf.

The Mission:

Black Girls Surf supports girls/women whose career goals are competing in the professional surfing. Through, the fundraising efforts we have been able to send athletes to compete and train with professionals to ensure that they are prepared. Under BGS, participants will have an opportunity to train with world-class surfing professionals.

Black Girls Surf was the brain-child of USCG veteran, Rhonda Harper, who noticed the lack of visibility within professional surfing. As a longtime surfer with aspirations of becoming a professional surfer herself, she understood the need for coaches, mentors and trainers of color. In short, she wanted to become the mentor she needed for surfers around the world.

What seemed impossible in the 1980’s is a reality today.
