Velwet is a female surf collective based on deep friendship and a shared passion for surfing and creativity. The members of Velwet use their experiences in nature and of living a nomadic lifestyle as inspiration for their artistic work including photography, film, graphic art, music, and fashion. Velwet is also a support group and safe space for girls and women who want to surf, live an independent lifestyle, and simply do what they love regardless of gender biases.
Annika’s presentation will focus on the nexus of surfing and creativity and what it means to be a female surfer. She will also share recommendations for female solo travel as well as her favorite surf and camping spots around the globe.
