When was the last time you refused to take 'no' for an answer? Belen Alvarez Kimble shares about the life-changing instance when she pushed against cultural norms and expectations to lay down her life's path.
Belen occupied one of the very few positions as a professional freesurfer through the early 2000s and worked with surf brands as an ambassador for unifying women’s surfing around the globe. She stands amongst the longboarding icons of the Blue Crush era that saw the resurgence of women to the line-up.
Belen grew up in a traditional Mexican household in southern California, her mother a first-generation immigrant from Mexico.
