Nude Surfer is Making Waves

A surfer from New Zealand named Marama Kake is making waves in addition to surfing them for her sudden desire to go riding in the nude.  “I’m not out there to get everyone to look at me, I just love the sensation and simplicity of surfing in my ‘sustainability suit’,” Kake told The Courier-Mail.  “I cover up, or paddle away, if I am anywhere near children and have never had any trouble with lifeguards or authorities and I’ve been doing it for years in Australia and New Zealand.”

 

Kake is also an environmental activist who rides a timber alaia designed for her by shaper Tom Wegener and a surfboard designed by eco-friendly D’Arcy factory on the Gold Coast.  Kake does most of her nude surfing in Australia, so sadly those in the U.S. will be unable to enjoy this pleasurable distraction.
