Women Surfing: Two Women at the Top of the Wave

Sara Gerhardt and Elizabeth Pepin not only know how to surf waves, they also know how to make them. Each in her own way has pushed the envelope for women in the male-dominated world of surfing. Gerhardt, who has a PhD in physical chemistry, has been a surfer for over 20 years. She was the first woman to surf Mavericks with its 20 foot tall waves. Pepin has been capturing the women’s surf scene with her camera since 1997. Her skills at photographing the surfing scene have earned her four Emmy Awards.
