Wider Image: Meet Senegal's first female pro surfer inspiring girls to take to the waves
Beginners learning how to surf, enter the sea during a training session coached by Khadjou Sambe, Senegal's first female professional surfer, and Rhonda Harper, the founder of Black Girls Surf (BGS), a training school for girls and women who want to compete in professional surfing, at Yoff district, Dakar, Senegal, July 28, 2020. Sambe went to California in 2018 to train with BGS. Harper said she arrived without a cent in her pocket, speaking no English and with a wild, free surf style that needed taming to fit the structure of surf competitions. "It's like trying to take a tornado right, and put a rope around it, wrangle that thing down. Because she is such a dynamic surfer that it's hard." Harper said BGS started looking for female surfers in Africa because of the lack of representation in professional surfing. REUTERS/Zohra Bensemra SEARCH "SENEGALESE WOMEN SURFER" FOR THIS STORY.
