IRAN: First Girl to Surf

Outfitted in hijab surfwear, Ireland's leading woman surfer, 26 year old Easkey Britton, headed to a remote area of Iran, a short strip of coast lying in a narrow swell window between Pakistan and the Gulf of Oman. She was the first woman to surf Iran, as far as we know. Of the experience she quoted Marie Curie, "Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood."
