Facing her fear of failure empowered Felicity Palmateer to conquer some of the world’s biggest waves. Flick joins Sam Squiers to discuss why she ditched her pro tour ambitions to be a big wave surfer, how she keeps herself calm during a wipe out, and what she’d like to say to her Mum if she had the chance.
The WSL held the first Women’s Big Wave World Tour Event and it wasn’t the same as the men’s. But women don’t need empty praise, this is what they need.
Felicity Palmateer stars in the first episode of our “Be Brave” series as she takes us through how she conquered the biggest wave ever surfed by an Australian woman.
