Făcut surf în costumul Evei

Mare agitaţie pe o plajă din Australia: o femeie şi-a luat placa de surf şi s-a aruncat goală în valuri, spre deliciul celor care ieşiseră la bronzat. Femeia, pe nume Marama Kake (32 de ani), are experienţă în surfing şi-i place să practice acest sport doar în costumul Evei, deoarece se simte mai lejeră şi mai aproape de natură. "Nu fac asta ca să se uite oamenii la mine, ci pentru că iubesc senzaţia aceea de libertate şi simplitate de a face surf fără haine", spune ea. "Dacă sunt copii prin preajmă mă acopăr cu ceva şi înot mai departe. Fac asta de ani de zile în Noua Zeelandă şi Australia şi un am avut niciodată probleme cu autorităţile", a declarat Marama pentru publicaţia australiană The Courier.

A NAKED surfer has been creating more than a ripple of interest on the Sunshine Coast.
Although scantily clad beachgoers are common in the tourist haven, boardriders and walkers have been left blushing by the sight of a woman taking to the ocean in her bare essentials.
Word of the bold and mysterious visitor has spread quickly from the beach to businesses and barbecues.
Long-time surfer Ian Borland said he almost fell off his board when the "curvy" young woman paddled out "starkers" at Noosa.
"I've been surfing for almost 50 years and I have never seen anything like it. There must have been 100 guys out there and out she paddled bold as brass," he said.
"The reaction was shock at first and then everyone thought it was quite funny. We were all intrigued."

The Courier-Mail spotted the woman who has become known around Noosa as "the naked surfer" riding waves at nearby Sunshine Beach.
Marama Kake is a New Zealander who calls the world her home and there's much more to the 32-year-old than meets the eye.
She rides "green boards", including a timber alaia designed for her by master craftsman Tom Wegener and another from the eco-friendly D'Arcy factory on the Gold Coast, and wants to spread a message of sustainable surfing.
"I'm not out there to get everyone to look at me, I just love the sensation and simplicity of surfing in my 'sustainability suit'," Ms Kake said.
"I cover up, or paddle away, if I am anywhere near children and have never had any trouble with lifeguards or authorities and I've been doing it for years in Australia and New Zealand."
Ms Kake, who has "get naked, get sustainable" inscribed on her boards, said reactions were mostly favourable. She said women came over to say they admired her courage.
"It changes the mood very quickly and cuts through the aggression that is finding its way to busy point breaks. It's a sure-fire cure for wave rage," she joked.
The Naked Surfer has also become "lost in the moment" at Byron Bay recently, where locals were just as accommodating as Noosa.
A former student of politics and psychology who has worked teaching English to children in Japan, Ms Kake said she was travelling around gaining support for a new environmentally conscious network, called Project 13.
"We want to set up a global network of volunteers - a vessel to give back. Part of the project will be designing sustainable clothing, including surfwear and wetsuits," she said.
