KADIATU KAMARA, SIERRA LEONE’S ONLY FEMALE SURFER

“After the death of my father, we were faced with several challenges including paying my school fees and my mother was faced with the difficulties of raising stipends to pay my school fees and that of my brother so, at the age of sixteen, I came around Bureh beach where I joined the Surfer club to learn the sports from the male surfers in the club; but it wasn’t a smooth sailing run for me, I recall the first time I tried to learn the sports, I drowned gulping some gallons of water, I was rescued thereafter,  my colleagues recused me”.

I stopped for a while because I was scared to death, but after some time, my passion and desire to succeed and create a legacy as the only Female surfer in my country Sierra Leone encouraged me to continue to learn the sports and over the years, I have built my self-confidence, learning lots of tricks in the sports with loads of experience and today I am glad to say that I have started sharing my experience with some kids around the vicinity.”

“I am proud to be the only Female Surfer in my country Sierra Leone and I want to leave a mark of legacy through this sports.”
