MAYA GABEIRA SURFS au naturel FOR ESPN'S BODY ISSUE
Brazilian big wave rider Maya Gabeira surfs for the 2012 ESPN Magazine's Body Issue (hitting stands everywhere today).
Asked Maya:Why did you decide to pose for the Body Issue?
MG: I was honored to be among so many amazing athletes and to celebrate the athlete's body. I want to show that surfers can have feminine bodies. You can have the body you need for the sport and still be a woman.
If you could write the caption for your Body photo, what would it say?
MG: Strong but feminine.
