Event Description

Full Description:
Images of surfing have tended to reflect consumer culture’s fascination with youthfulness, simultaneously perpetuating a myth that participants are reckless, male risk-seeking hedonists. This image, however, is being challenged with increasing numbers of older male and female surfers taking to the water. Drawing on empirical research conducted in the UK, A/Prof Belinda Wheaton explores older surfer’s experiences and subjectivities, and the meanings that recreational surfing plays in participants’ lives and identities as they grow older.
A/Prof Belinda Wheaton from the University of Waikato, New Zealand is best known for her extensive research on the politics of identity in action/lifestyle sport.
