    A Year of Second Breakfast: Recapping Waves & Wisdom

    It has been (nearly!) a year since we released our first ever episode with Second Breakfast! Time for a recap. In this episode, Holly and SWA surf instructor/podcast producer Beany review our last year on Second Breakfast. Listen to us banter about Holly's recent experience at the Kelly Slater Surf Ranch, some of our favorite highlights from our episodes this past year, and a rehashing of our original intentions in the creation of this platform: a space to connect, promote inclusivity and empowerment, and have challenging conversations. In this episode, we also look forward to topics we're looking to chat about in Season 2 of Second Breakfast.

    Beyond Binary: Sasha Jane Lowerson’s Story

    The WSL, the governing body of pro surfers, has altered the rules about the competition qualifications in the women’s division, following along with the olympic guidelines based on hormone levels. This has led to great controversy, both in and out of the surfing world. Today we chat with Sasha Jane Lowerson, a trans woman who has competed and won both in the men’s and women’s divisions in Australia. We talk about the debates surrounding trans competition in pro surfing, we debunk some misconceptions about gender transition, dive into the challenges of dealing with doctors, gender identity, and the biggest differences between competing in the men and women’s division in surfing.

    How Can We Create Generational Change for Safer Surf Culture?

    How Can We Create Generational Change for Safer Surf Culture?

    How can we ensure that all surfers are safe in the water? As a Mexican American, Dionne had the idea to start an organization, Wahine Project, to get more underrepresented humans surfing and feeling welcome in the water. Her organization’s goal is to help individuals overcome whatever barriers they may face in order to have ocean access, in turn bolstering our own health and that of our planet. Her organization recently conducted a survey that analyzed violence in the water; it noted that 84% of women have witnessed or experienced violence while surfing. In this episode we chat about how to build more inclusive businesses, stick up for others in the water, create generational changes, and navigate our biases in the lineup.

Different Perspectives on Surfing

I really like this podcast because it feels like normal people talking about life.

Fantastically engaging

This is first surf podcast that’s held my interest through more than one episode. I’ve been on two SWA retreats and I’ve met Holly, so it’s not surprising to me that these episodes are so good, but I am really enjoying this podcast. I hope that many others do too!

They’ve done it again!

After multiple retreats, I thought I knew all things SWA. There premiere podcast was delightfully entertaining as well as informative, to there roots and humble beginning. It comes with great pleasure to to find this content available to expand and complement the surfing & travel experiences of SWA. Can’t wait to hear and see more on these 2 fantastic woman and the teams they’ve crafted. Peace
