Tales from an all-girls surf trip.
We Are 5 Women... traveling through the Middle East. Would it be ok to surf in a bikini? Would we be safe to only have a female presence? Surfing is the common thread that unites us. We believe our love for the sea and our search for pure experience will guide our connection to the community in and around Tel Aviv.

Ishita Malaviya is India's first female surfer. Founder of the Shaka Surf Club in India, she brings her love and passion for surfing to her community and all around the world. She is truly a goddess among goddesses.
prAna Ambassador Anna Ehrgott is a traveling free surfer. She moves through this world and water with elegance and grace. She is the creator of Sagebrush Board bags, and she also has an eye with her 35mm lens.
Meg Haywood Sullivan is a photographer and environmentalist. Her passion shines through with every image. An absolute dream to travel with she is always ready for action!
Nicole Gromley is a filmer and photographer. Getting her skills from the world of television she can truly see the story unfold.
And Lisa Sheldon, a longtime prAna Adventurer, athlete, and model. She can be found, notebook in hand, soaking up the environment, capturing the moment, translating the present into a modern mythology laced with adventure.
Search for Waves in Desert Daze

WADI RUM “It’s Mars out here. Day dreaming, asleep, awake, in our space pods on the brink of the Wadi Rum abyss.
Arabic jingles on a dusty radio punctuate the silence. The vastness.
With lemon mint tea in hand, Anna and I take a moment of stillness to appreciate the wonder, the scale and storied history of the very special Middle Eastern oasis.”
- Lisa
“Camel bellows echo through the canyons and Bedouin laughter breathes life to this other-worldly landscape.
We. Are. Out there.”

CROSSING THE JORDANIAN BORDER Starting with walking across the border, yes everyone has to walk across at this entry. Itʼs a bit of a haul, so definitely donʼt bring more than you can carry. Several hours of security checks and minor confusion we made our way into the pink sandstone sunset.

WE ARRIVE IN PETRA… at night just in time for the candlelit walk down to the Treasury. This is an ancient hidden city carved into the stone canyons. It's one of the new 7 wonders of the world and nothing shy of remarkable. THE ROSE CITY WELCOME Petra otherwise known as the rose city has been around as early as 312BC and they say that nearly 80% of the city is still buried underground. The Bedouin people that still live there entertain the people coming through. They played the flute and Oud to welcome us under the stars as they told stories of the Nabataean family that once ruled Petra. Hot wax from the candles dripped on our hands as we shared sweet tea together trying to take it all in. A perfect welcoming into Jordan. HIKING PETRA Seven miles of hiking followed by horses and a wild donkey ride up the steep stone cliff sides leading us to massive tombs and monasteries.

PATH TO WADI RUM Ripping through the desert on 90ʼs Isuzu 4x4, head scarves flying free, I convince the driver to let me take the wheel.
As five women traveling together we couldnʼt help but feel empowered by the freedoms we have. Most women in the Bedouin communities are in an arranged marriage before they are 20 years old.

BACK AT IT BRIGHT & EARLY... After sunrise clifftop yoga, we were all antsy to get some more action. There were a few horses they offered us. They looked wild eyed and ready. Anna jumped on the “mellow” horse and within moments started charging. A few seconds and this thing was in a full sprint with no inclination to stop. Flying down the middle of some train tracks we raced behind her trying to catch up and get it to stop. We finally intercepted the horse as it was forced to a halt.

GOING BACK TO TEL AVIV With all of the excitement we were stoked to be heading back to Tel Aviv the next day. It looked like there was a little wind swell and we were hyped to meet the local kids and surf with them at their break. With a quick float at the dead sea we were just warming up to be back in the salty water.
Rehashing the day under the stars, we ate more hummus and watched the locals dance to The Macarena with tea on their heads. Even in the modernized geo domes, we were still stuck in a different time.
THE BEST WAVES ARE SHARED WAVES Straight to Up and Riding Surf Club, we were all so happy to be back on more familiar ground. The kids were ready to go! Suited up and down to shred. It’s so awesome to see this little community thrive from something so simple as surfing. It's truly what brought us all together and we were all so excited to share waves! One kid asked “doesn't California have the best waves in the world? So why are you coming to surf here?” For us it’s not about the quality of the waves, it’s the connections you make through people that share the same love and passion.
