About Bianca Valenti
EMERGING IN LEADERSHIP
Fighting for gender equity
Bianca Valenti plays to win. As one of the best athletes in the world, and one of only a handful of female big wave surfers, she’s dedicated to creating a more equitable world for all. That means equal pay, equal opportunity, equal access, plus protecting our oceans through conservation efforts and environmental stewardship.
OUR SURFING IS REVOLUTIONARY
Professional big wave surfer Bianca Valenti first took to the ocean when she was seven.
Because there were no girls’ divisions, she competed with the boys. Throughout her career in professional big wave surfing, which she calls “a whole different ball game,” Valenti has dedicated herself to empowering female surfers.
“Dedicate, don’t hesitate!”
Competitive? Yes I am.
To be honest: I'm a very competitive person. Mostly with myself. Because I've learned that what's healthiest.
