About the Author
Maya Gabeira is a Brazilian big-wave surfer, best known for setting the 2018 Guinness World Record for biggest wave ever surfed by a woman and then breaking her own record in 2020 with a wave of 73.5 feet, the biggest surfed by anyone--male or female--that year. As an ESPY Award winner and seven-time World Surf League Big Wave Award winner, Gabeira is one of the most influential surfers of all time. She is also passionately committed to and a fierce advocate for restoring the world's oceans. She lives in Nazare, Portugal. Ramona Kaulitzki is the illustrator of the #1 New York Times bestseller Sisters First, as well as Wonderful You, Badger's Perfect Garden, and several other books. She lives in Germany, and her love for animals and nature is a major inspiration for her work. You can visit her online at ramonakaulitzkiart.com.
"Both text and illustrations offer a stirring account of Maya's journey to surfing mastery. . .A rallying cry for anyone looking for a strong example of perseverance."--Kirkus Reviews
