The Biggest Wave surfed this year:

 

Maya Gabeira didn’t just ride the biggest wave ever ridden by a woman. It was the biggest wave surfed by anyone in the 2019-20 winter season, a first for women in professional surfing”

- NEW YORK TIMES

 

In the intimidating and macho world of big-wave surfing, Brazilian Maya Gabeira is breaking male and female records – and challenging the sport’s testosterone-fuelled identity”

- THE GUARDIAN

It’s a moment we don’t often see in sports: a woman beating a man."

- THE ATLANTIC

But in the world of ordinary things, Maya is a powerful outsider. And outsiders matter and have an impact on people. They prove that despite what the media tells us, there are far more interesting and exploratory ways to spend your time in this strange place called Earth: surfing monster waves around the globe, getting paid to do what you love the most, and doing all of that without having to be …a man.
