Jasmim Avelino is longboarder, from Rio de Janeiro, we’re so happy to introduce her as an AdalùSingleFinLady:
“I started surfing at the age of 9, encouraged by my father and sister, both longboard surfers. My family always breathed in the surf, even my dog is called Onda. At the age of 12, I participated in my first championship and surfing never left my life. Today, I am 24 years old and I have a degree in biology and a 2x professional Brazilian champion. I chose the longboard for transmitting the real essence of surfing, by gliding, delicately, without competing with the wave, just respecting the movements with style and smoothness, express at sea. In the past, it was rare to find girls at sea. I suffered many prejudices and machismo for being a woman and longboarder. Nowadays, the women’s movement is growing and we are gaining a lot of space
in the water, often with more women than men outside, it is very cool to see this female union for the common love of the sport.
The Bailarinas do Mar project emerged through the lack of a new female generation in the longboard category and competitors in Brazil. I created the project to spread the love for this aspect of surfing, seeking to present the love for long boards, walking and female dancing. Aiming to encourage and enhance our category in Brazil. I started with surf lessons and currently organize surf trips around Brazil for peaks with high waves and nature.”

Federica is a 29 years old italian surfer from Genoa. She works as a wedding planner, and she’s also a great singer. She discovered surfing when she was 21 and it completely changed her life. She discovered a world that she will never ever leave for any reason. She found herself perfectly inside the surfer lifestyle that now belongs to her in both positive and negative sides and finally she discovered an infinite love for nature and the sea. She found new friends with whom she shares this infinite passion, other strong and challenging women like her who play an important role in a particular masculine reality. Surfing also allows her to travel, discover new places that she had never ever imagined before but above all it makes her see the world from another point of view, from the water. Female surfing, for her, expresses beauty and elegance, when she slides on a wave she feels like dancing on the water and she won’t ever stop to dance.

For some years she has become a Yoga teacher, a discipline which provides her the right balance to face the crowded sessions of her home spot…and it helps her almost always! 😉
