A Star in Santander Walk of Fame

A little tribute to all women, who have been pioneers in their work.

A woman in a world of men. She was born in Santander , in 1956.

She did sports at sea. The boys lent him their sports equipment.

It wasn’t easy to practice this sport, due to the strict moral of the time.

There weren’t any women’s competitions so at first she had to participate in the men’s category.

Her father was champion of Spain in long jump and one hundred meters smooth in 1941.

She inherited from her father the sports spirit. In 1971, with 15 years of age, she managed to save to buy her first board, it cost 3500 pesetas, about 20€. She was the first woman to do surf.

She has had a star on Santander walk of fame since 21 June 2018.

She opened her first sports store in 1977 with her husband.
