Wave Tribe Team Rider First Woman to Tow-in

Wave Tribe team rider is the first woman surfer to tow-in at El Buey, Chile.
June 20, 2009 - PRLog -- Wave Tribe team rider Mercedes Maidana became the first woman to surf epic El Buey in Chile this week. It was her first time to tow-in, a new experience that this Hawaiian local said she was very excited about---we'll see lots more of Mercedes charging big tow-in surf around the globe.

When Mercedes first approached Wave Tribe we asked her why she was interested in partnering with the world's first green surf company, her stoke for surfing and her passion for life was as evident in her answer, "surfing is the love of my life. I would not know what to do or who to be if I didn't have it. As any loving relationship, I think that it has to have a balance of giving and receiving. The ocean gives me more gifts than I could ever reciprocate."

Wave Tribe team riders are more than surfers, they are conscious beings that recognize the importance of helping to transform the surf industry and when we asked Mercedes why green surf products were important to her she responded, "One way for me to keep the balance is to start doing small changes in my life to preserve what I love the most. That's why sustainability is so important: is the simplest way to be thankful to nature."

Mercedes is an surf diva and Wave Tribe is proud to sponsor this rising star.
