Stephanie Gilmore is a dream of a female surfer. Best style, super cool, and beautiful. Always has something intelligent to say as well. More so than most normal “so good, super stoked” type surfers.

Wavelength magazine got Steph on the phone right as she landed in south west France to talk about editing magazines, female sexualization in surfing, and much more.

 

WL: Picking up on that, do you struggle with that fine line between overtly sexual and tasteful..

S: It’s all about context, if wear your G-string and post it on a men’s website and it will come across like ‘I don’t know about that’, but if you post it on a fashion mags website it is seen in a different way.

Hey man whatever floats your boat, if your into, go for gold, if you’re comfortable in your own skin to wear the tiniest bit of bikini then it’s all good.

But if you’re being pressured into it then I don’t think its cool. If you’re doing it for other reasons than you feel proud about who you are and your body then…

WL: Like to web hits?

S: Yeah, but at the same time female surfing is sexy, it’s what we wear in surfing, it’s our uniform, in a way girls almost have that advantage, because they can surf well and also have this glamorous element.
