Teen Girl Takes Down Popular Surf Mag In Epic Letter

Posted: Updated:

Olive Bowers is a big fan of surfing. So when she came across Tracks magazine at a friend's house, the surf publication caught her attention -- and not in a good way.

According to News.com.au, in a letter of epic proportions, the 13-year-old called out Tracks for their lack of representation of female surfers.

The only photo of a woman I could find was ‘’Girl of the month’’. She wasn’t surfing or even remotely near a beach.

These images create a culture in which boys, men and even girls reading your magazine will think that all girls are valued for is their appearance.

Head over to News.com.au to read the letter in its entirety.

The teen athlete ended her note with a request for big changes:

I urge you to give much more coverage to the exciting women surfers out there, not just scantily clad women (who may be great on the waves, but we'll never know).

*Slow clap*
