Surfer girls today don’t satisfied themselves only by shredding on the waves and some of them decided to combine their passion with their work by creating the brand of surfwear, swimwear, surfbag, jewel, etc. Here are a few portraits of those single-minded creative surfer who have gold in their hands.
Coline Ménard / Atelier Plage
Coming from the Reunion Island and pro longboarder in the Roxy team for years Coline set up home in the Landes and left the pro tour to dedicate herself to her work as an opticien while keeping surfing the beautiful waves of the Landes and the Basque Country. Over her trips around the world Coline picked up seashells from the best surf spots and decided to transform them into jewels through her brand Atelier Plage.
