Senegal’s First Female Surfer

Khadjou Sambe, 25, Senegal’s first female professional surfer, trains off the coast of Ngor, Dakar, Senegal, on August 18, 2020.

“I always think to myself, when I wake up in the morning, Khadjou, you’ve got something to do. You represent something everywhere in the world. You must go straight to the point. Don’t give up, whatever people say. Whatever they say, don’t listen. Go forward so that everybody can get up and believe they can surf.”
