Do women surfers peak earlier than men?
It can seem that way. Noone over 30 on the womens tour, whereas the men seem to be getting older and older. It’s just a question of maturity, in surfing and in life! The thing that strikes me is that the men are more at ease on the World Tour and the women are less so. The other thing I guess that’s true across any sport is that when men want to start a family, they don’t need to stop competing. I was actually talking to Steph Gilmore about this recently and she told me that she sees herself sticking on tour a while. She likes the lifestyle, travelling, she’s not tied down. So maybe that’s the secret to longevity.
