Surfer Maya Gabiera Featured in ESPN the Body Issue

Pro surfer Maya Gabiera from Brazil is the only action sports athlete featured in this year’s ESPN the Body Issue. Which is a bit surprising because last year we saw Louie Vito, Gretchen Bleiler and Stephanie Gilmore. Regardless Gabiera makes up for it with both her images. One a graceful nude duckdive, the other a swirling lineup scanning posterier angle worth praising. In speaking with ESPN about it, the big wave goddess said:

“It’s pretty weird to surf naked,” she said in this video interview, “I had to focus on surfing and I was more just self conscious to control something that was uncontrollable. On her family’s thoughts…”I’ve been getting some good feedback. My family liked it — my Dad, that was a big relief,” Gabeira told me today, “I liked it myself. I felt more artistic than exposed. But the picture came out alright.”
