Monique Kitamura - Profile
Part of the crew known as the Outer Bar Babes, a group of Bay Area big wave women surfers. When Ocean Beach starts to break in the 10-15 foot range the texts start going off among these women. From the first time Monique set eyes on OB instead of being scared off she felt this lure. It was years before she met another woman in the lineup.
Eventually meeting Rebecca Wunderlich and a few other notable women big waver surfers like Sachi Cunningham, Bianca Valenti, Anna Wankel who now make up the Outer Bar Babes. In spite of 6 dislocated shoulders, a near-drowning, motherhood and a demanding career, Monique still wants to push herself to surf bigger and bigger waves.
