Empowering Womxn

We believe in empowering all womxn to pursue their passions and become leaders in their communities. We provide resources and support to help womxn develop their skills and achieve their goals.

Creating Connections

We are building a community of like-minded womxn who share a passion for water activities. Our community provides a safe and supportive space for womxn of all backgrounds and identities to connect, share their experiences, and learn from one another.

Who We Are

Women in the Water is a community of womxn-identified folks who are connected by the water. Our mission is to promote community, inclusion, education, and advocacy in the waters we call home. We are based in Santa Barbara, California and are working to create the changes we wish to see in our local diving, surfing, boating, and beach-going community.
