World’s First Woman To Surf In Iran

“Irish surfer Easkey Britton loves making waves back home, where she’s constantly battling harsh weather conditions just to catch a few rides. But her challenges at home pale in comparison to those she faced on a recent trip to Iran, where she claims she became the first female to surf in the country. Britton traveled to Iran’s southern tip in the Arabian Sea to look for surf, and she did so during the Indian monsoon season in the hopes that the storms would kick up the ocean. The stifling heat and curious stares were things she was prepared for, but she says the most pleasant surprise was how kindly the Iranian people greeted her.” w/ photos
