Surfing and sisterhood - making waves in Jamaica

Imani Wilmot was born into a surfing family – her father is known as the 'godfather' of Jamaican surfing and her brothers are also avid boarders, so she took to it like a duck to water. She was good too, winning competitions and representing her country with pride. But she soon realised that she was the only top black female surfer at those competitions, and that if she wanted a community around her she’d have to create it herself. Imani spoke to Jo Fidgen about how she set up a surf school for girls and women when she was 17, sharing her confidence and discovering the healing power of the waves.Presenter: Jo FidgenProducer: Thomas Harding AssinderPicture: Imani Wilmot and her daughter NyaCredit: Lucy Jane
